The Organisation of African Trade Union Unity (OATUU), in collaboration with the Bureau of Workers’ Activities (ACTRAV) of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) held a two-day workshop at the OATUU Secretariat in Accra from 24 to 26 January 2018. The aim of this meeting was to plan and streamline a biennium draft strategic plan of OATUU based on the ILO ACTRAV’s strategic framework for cooperation.

Fifteen (15) participants attended this workshop; seven (7) experts from ACTRAV including the moderator Comrade Mohammed MWAMADZINGO and eight (8) Representatives from OATUU led by its Secretary General Mr. Arezki MEZHOUD and Comrade Abdoulaye Lelouma Diallo, OATUU’s Permanent Representative to the ILO in Geneva.

The Secretary General of OATUU, welcoming the participants, stressed that the programme had been designed for inclusive analyses and input with the Bureau for Workers’ Activities (ACTRAV).  He remarked that “this is a better option in relation to that of former times when a programme was unilaterally developed and sent to ACTRAV for adoption” and expressed the hope that ACTRAV’s involvement would help to enhance OATUU’s goals as their expertise would be brought to bear for efficiency whilst cooperating at the regional, sub/regional and national levels.
