Given the unprecedented nature of the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, social and policy dialogue involving governments and employers’ and workers’ representative organisations is more important than ever. Unfortunately, periods of crisis often tend to reinforce authoritarian and top-down attitudes, including in the field of education. While there have been good examples of cooperation between governments and trade unions during the crisis, in many cases, teachers’ associations and trade unions have not been adequately consulted, let alone involved in decision-making. This document provides resources to inform the response of education unions in this next stage of the Covid-19 education crisis. It features information, research and, most importantly, examples of union actions in more than 50 countries across all regions.
