Despite the security concerns and marshal law that have been exercised in the eve of the second anniversary of the occupation, the FWCUI have successfully held its second conference attended by more than 200 labor activists and representatives from all across Iraq.
Many subjects were put forward to the conference for discussion, and they are as it follows:
the role of the workers in deciding the fate of the Iraqi political future
the trade unions freedoms and association
the role of the workers in introducing progressive and contemporary labor law
the role of women in building trade unions
Heated discussions and debates were noticed around these areas, and then the vote regarding the conference resolutions, and a modification regarding the union slogan were held. Later on a new executive board was elected.
Finally the conference has come to an end after its resolutions have been adopted unanimously as ground work for the upcoming activities.
