FISE’s condolences for the death of Mohammad Shaban Azouz.
FISE, the World Federation of Teachers’ Unions, with sadness bids farewell to brother Mohammad Shaban Azouz, historic leader of the GFTU Syria and former President of the World Federation of Trade Unions.
Shaban Azouz played an important role in the activities of the World Federation of Trade Unions during the difficult years of the 1990s and early 2000s. He was an important figure for the trade union movement in the Arab countries and the ICATU.
Steadfast in the struggle against imperialism and oppression, he left an important legacy to the world labour movement for the friendship and brotherhood of peoples.
FISE expresses its deepest condolences to his family and his son Adnan Azouz.
