No political force is currently more needed than the unions. If anything, they are in a position to successfully stand up to racist and xenophobic sentiments. A special role is played by those unions that are active in the areas of care, education and training: Verdi as well as the GEW, i.e. the trade union for education and science founded in 1948, which calls itself an education trade union and wants to fight for equal opportunities, co-determination, social security as well as for democracy.
