The International Teachers Union Brief Story


Upon decision of foundation of the General Union, the Founders faced the problem of the enormous number of gaps in the structure of the professional trade unions.

As always expected, the founders decided to concentrate their activities to the closest achievable unions. Since the majority of the founders are either professors or yet researchers and they all carry out teaching activities, it was natural to start their founding activities by the International Professors Union and the International Researchers Union.

A very close Union was also, considered and decided to be founded in the next phase which is the International Teachers Union related to Educational Teachers and Assistants.

A very good start already existed in the majority of the countries in form of Teachers Syndicate or Association.

Several previous trials to build up an international organization coordinating between those National Teachers Syndicates or Associations, but unfortunately were not completed.

On the other hand, some very optimistic responses were received from many Teachers, especially those who recently moved to the USA and Canada, so the Founders decided to add the International Teachers Union to the two above mentioned International Unions and found it simultaneously.

Any interested individuals, groups or already established unions or associations who are interested in representing their countries are more than welcomed, but for organization of our works they are recommended to start their direct contact with the Founder who is related to their area, simply to facilitate communications and to reduce overlap errors and repeated actions.

It is important to state that the targets and services for the International Teachers Union were initially adopted, yet they are still subjected to additions or modifications.
