The Global Labour Institute is a labour service organisation established in 1997 in Geneva, Switzerland.
Its purpose is to support the efforts of the labour movement to deal with the globalization of the world economy and its social and political consequences and, to this end, to strengthen links and networks between trade unions and other civil society organizations with similar or converging interests, particularly in the defense of human and democratic rights and social justice in all its aspects. It is guided by the principles and values of democratic socialism.
The GLI is chaired by Dan Gallin, former general secretary of the IUF
(the international federation of food, agriculture, hotel and catering and tobacco workers’ unions).
