The Summit for Democracy Year of Action core team has released meeting notes for their Workers’ Rights Consultation Session. They state the following:

“Representatives from the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Labor previewed the United States goals for a labor-focused Democracy Cohort and solicited feedback from attendees. We intend to convene a group of governments and non-governmental experts focused on workers’ rights. Although the specifics are being finalized, the expectation is for the cohort to bring together stakeholders to advance workplace democracy, labor union rights, workers’ voice, and freedom of association by creating opportunities to hear from workers themselves. A goal of the labor cohort is to integrate workers’ voice into other Summit dialogues to expand conversations on workers’ rights. The cohort is intended to be complementary, rather than duplicative of existing global labor initiatives.”
