A special kind of automotive summit - Automotive workers' conference 2020 has begun

Automobile workers come together in South Africa. The 2nd International Automotive Workers' Conference was opened with a festive ceremony today, February 19, 2020, at City-Hall in Vereeniging, South Africa.


It was a special honour for the conference topics that the Chief (tribal leader) Kehana Amandebelle Royal Kingdom warmly welcomed the participants in an honorary speech.

The conference was introduced by the anthem of the automotive workers and a militant song of the South African workers.

Under the stormy applause of the 250 participants, delegations from 19 countries were welcomed: Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Morocco, Netherlands, Philippines, Russia, Spain, South Africa, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, USA.

This conference is a unique gathering of active automotive workers.

Exciting and lively reports were given about the social, living and working conditions from the countries. The participants were outraged about inhuman conditions in technically modern factories of the large automobile and supplier factories in many countries.

The will and the power of the workers to fight for their rights in strikes and to organise themselves in trade unions became clear at the same time.
One thing shaped all reports: the necessary international union of the world's automotive workers.

Everybody is looking forward to the discussions of the next days until February 23rd.
Celebration and friendship connects all participants.
