The International Union of Food, Farm and Hotel Workers (IUF) is fed up with government inaction on nanotechnology. It is concerned both that governments have failed to take action to ensure that workers do not safe face unsafe occupational exposure to nanotoxicity, and also that governments have failed to create mechanisms to involve the public in decision making about nanotechnology’s introduction. In what may be a world first for a labour union, at its upcoming March 19-22 Congress in Geneva, the IUF "will discuss the need for a global moratorium on the introduction of nano-engineered particles and processes into commercial production until such time as the potential safety threats can be adequately measured and evaluated.”
