AFL-CIO Focuses on Relief Efforts, Calls for Cancellation of IMF Meeting..continued "...We remain steadfast in our conviction that the policies of the World Bank and the IMF must change if they are to foster a fair and just global economy that works for working families everywhere.  We will continue to call for new rules for the global economy that protect people and the planet, not just multinational corporate interests, and to work to defeat fast track trade negotiating authority, to win cancellation of debt for poor nations and to develop strong global HIV/AIDS policies."
