    Francis Atwoli elected as ITUC Vice President in Australia

    Published on

    Francis Atwoli, secretary general of the Central Organization of Trade Unions (COTU), has been re-elected to serve as vice president of the International Trade Union (ITUC) for a record-setting fourth time.

    The ITUC 5th congress, now taking place in Melbourne, Australia, elected Atwoli to his position.

    Atwoli’s reelection solidifies his position as a global trade union leader.

    The International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) is the world’s biggest labor organization, with over 200 million members in 163 countries with a headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.

    With 2000 ITUC delegates in attendance, Atwoli was elected as vice president overwhelmingly.

    The 73-year-old Atwoli has held a number of prestigious roles, and he has said that this current term will be his last on the global scene.

    Since 2001, the ITUC vice president has served on the Board of Trustees for the National Social Security Fund Kenya (NSSF).

    Since 2008, he has served as a voting member of the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) Governing Body in Geneva, Switzerland.

    The vocal unionist also holds the position of Secretary General for Kenya’s largest labor organization, COTU.

    It was in 2001 when Atwoli was first elected COTU Secretary General in Kenya.
