On 24 May, TUAC and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka chaired a special presentation and discussion at the OECD 50th Anniversary Forum, of the new book, "Exiting from the Crisis". The OECD Secretary-General addressed the launch.

The book is a volume of essays from global trade union leaders and economists on achieving a more just and sustainable model of global economic growth. It is the product of the Global Unions Taskforce on a New Growth Model, a joint project of the Trade Union Advisory Committee (TUAC) to the OECD, the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI), the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and the Global Union Research Network (GURN).

The task force involves more than 30 global trade union economists from a wide array of advanced, emerging and developing countries. The report includes a Preface by Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz.
