The International Employees Union Brief Story
Upon decision of foundation of the General Union, the Founders faced the problem of the enormous number of gaps in the structure of the professional trade unions.
As always expected, the founders decided to concentrate their activities to the closest achievable unions. Since the majority of the founders are either professors or yet researchers and they all carry out research activities, it was natural to start their founding activities by the International Educational Unions and then to the International Medical Unions.
A very close Union was also, considered and decided to be founded in the next phase which is the International Employees Union related to both Educational and Medical Employees and (non-Technical) Workers.
A very rare Employees Unions exist in few countries in form of Employees and (non-Technical) Workers Syndicate or Association. This is applied to both Educational and Medical Unions, since those categories are always forgotten, e.g. when talking about universities they are always considered as if they are only composed of Students and Professors, similarly in Hospitals or Clinics, they are always considered as if they are only composed of Patients and Medical Staff.
No previous trials to build up an international organization coordinating between those rare National Employees Syndicates or Associations.
On the other hand, some very optimistic responses were received from many Employees and (non-Technical) Workers, especially those who recently moved to the USA and Canada, so the Founders decided to add the International Employees Union to their current phase.
This specific Union is planned to be temporal, then it will be branched into several International Employees Unions, e.g. International Educational Employees Union and International Medical Employees Union and may be others.
By the end of 2011, the Founders received several subscriptions from individual members. The majority of those individual members are living in five geographic zones; those are mainly the Countries of the Mediterranean Sea, Arab, Europe, Africa and Asia.
Any interested individuals, groups or already established unions or associations who are interested in representing their countries are more than welcomed, but for organization of our works they are recommended to start their direct contact with the Founder who is related to their area, simply to facilitate communications and to reduce overlap errors and repeated actions.
It is important to state that the targets and services for the International Employees Union were initially adopted, yet they are still subjected to additions or modifications.
