Although it was not on the official agenda, workers from many countries made clear that they reject the process taking place in Brazil to remove democratically-elected president Dilma Rousseff. At the annual International Labor Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, workers from around the world unite every June to debate with governments and employers and defend worker’s rights. While this year’s meetings have focused on improving wages and conditions in global supply chains, workers delegations took the opportunity to make their opinions known when the interim government of Brazil’s Minister of Labor began to address the plenary on June 8.
