The World Trade Union Conference was held at County Hall, London in February 1945, and was presided over by Mr. George Isaacs, Chairman of the British Trade Union Congress. Besides other illuminating material collected in this report of the conference, the discussions between various delegates to the conference from around the world about fascism, imperialism and Zionism still repay reading today – Transcriber’s note.
