"It has been more than 7 months since the pandemic began in the region.

Now there is clarity about the impacts of the pandemic. But we do not yet know the full magnitude of those impacts.

Many of the proposals and demands to the pandemic that trade unions have put forward are not only remaining in force but are much more urgent today.

Our development proposal, embodied in the PLADA - the development platform of the Americas - always made a direct relationship with the 2030 Agenda and the sustainable development goals.

At this time, unions of the region are committed to act in defense of PLADA and the application of the 2030 Agendas and its SDGs, here in the Americas.

It is very important that the entire recovery after the pandemic and the unions’ agenda have both our development proposal and a direct relationship with the defense of the SDGs."
