In the sub-plenaries, some questions will be opened up for informal online polls of Congress participants. You will be shown where you can take part in polling on the ITUC Congress website. The polls are open to anyone who goes to the Congress website to take part; you can only vote once from your device.
At the conclusion of the discussions on Thursday 22 May, the Congress Standing Orders Committee will consider changes made in the full plenary (Main Congress Statement) and sub-plenaries (the three Frameworks for Action) to ensure that there are no inconsistencies between them and that the proposals are in line with the ITUC Constitution. It will then submit them to the Congress Plenary for endorsement on the morning of Friday 23 May.
Further to these formal sessions, there will be lunchtime panel debates and interviews on key topics broadcast on Congress Live.
The affiliates and individual participants at Congress will be asked to ‘Sign up for Climate Action’, to take direct action in the call to FIFA to demand fundamental rights as a condition for the World Cup in Qatar and to participate in a rally with ver.di and the Communication Workers of America on Deutsche Telekom’s violations of workers’ rights on its US/International operations. The rally will take place after Congress adjourns on Tuesday 20 May.
