About the network

15 unions worldwide have now signed an international agreement on defending education and employment standards in the context of global marketisation. Together, these unions represent more than half a million tertiary education workers around the world.

The deepening global recession and the cutting back of public provision will only give greater encouragement to a burgeoning private sector, making the international agreement only more relevant and important.

We are now turning this community of over 500,000 academics into something tangible.

About this site

This site has been designed to help education workers across the world to develop a vibrant international dimension to our work in challenging the marketisation of education.

We want to help education workers to help each other across the globe, turning the phrase ‘global solidarity’ into meaningful action. That means supporting each other in our campaigns, sharing information and best practice and working together to establish our agreed values and standards – our vision of a fair and universal education system.

You can read all the latest news and postings from the signatory unions in the ‘Recent posts’ section.
