Committee on Workers Capital

Today is the start of the 4th International Meeting of trade union pension trustees. This is organised by the Committee on Workers Capital (CWC)

The meeting last two days and is being held this year in London at the TUC, Congress House.

Last year in was held in Switzerland. Picture is from the informal dinner held last night. There are union trustees present from all over the world – USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Holland, Denmark, France, Germany, Spain.

It is an incrediblely useful opportunity to discuss common issues and exchange ideas. Due to other commitments I will not this year be able to attend all the meeting.

The agenda for today includes Burma – engaging Chinese companies; Labour as an Investment Issue; Green Jobs; PRI / Private equity / Infrastructure; Capital strategies.
