A universal labor union platform should be designed and written based on reason, common sense principles and ethical standards, encompassing all professional and freelance labor forces, ensuring worker’s safety, pension, health, fair living wages, worker’s rights to strike, collective bargaining and assembly. Educating and training future labor practitioners and labor union activists, individuals who aspire to leadership in their unions, communities and workplaces and those who wish to explore careers in labor, or related fields.
A universal labor union platform must address and resolve the age-old conflict between labor and capital. Establishing a clear understanding that the relationship between labor and capital are symbiotic. And developing a general well-being and productive policy between labor and capital, while encouraging a harmonious cooperative partnership between workers and investors.
