Less than a month after a U.S. presidential election in which candidates traded accusations about the increase in the number of jobs shifting from the U.S. to India and other countries, a delegation of labor leaders from India is coming to Atlanta. The goal of the tour is to develop grassroots strategies to force global corporations to respect workers' rights and to help build international solidarity between U.S. and Indian workers to fight for good jobs and fair labor standards.

The tour is sponsored by Jobs with Justice and India's New Trade Union Initiative. The New Trade Union Initiative is a democratizing force within the Indian labor movement, independent of any political party. It is playing a leading role in the larger social movements that are now burgeoning in India. Jobs with Justice is a national campaign for workers' rights with over 40 local coalitions that unite labor unions, community groups, faith-based organizations and students to promote economic and social justice for all working people.
