International Transport Federation calls for Action on Illegal Israeli Settlements

The International Transport Federation (ITF) passed a resolution yesterday at its 42 nd congress in Mexico , calling on transport workers to stop the transport of all goods and persons to illegal Israeli settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territories .

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) welcomes this important step forward in the campaign against the ongoing building of illegal settlements and against the Occupation.

The ITF represents 759 unions, with over 4,600,000 transport workers in 155 countries.

The resolution was tabled by the Palestinian General Federation of Trade Unions (PGFTU) and seconded by the RMT - the National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers.

RMT General Secretary and PSC patron, Bob Crow, said the vote was unanimous, with full support from all represented unions including railway and shipping unions.

The text of the final resolution will be available shortly. Please contact us for more information.
