About us

Equal Times is a global news and opinion website about work, politics, the economy, development and the environment.

Independent and provocative, with a strong focus on social justice, we aim to give a voice to those whose daily experiences and viewpoints are either under-represented or completely absent from mainstream media coverage.

Supported by the 175 million-member International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), Equal Times also aims to build an interactive online global community for those who are committed to the defense of human and labour rights, to the fight against poverty and inequality, and for environmentally and socially sustainable development.

Based in Brussels and published in English, French and Spanish our experienced editorial team is supported by a network of over 50 correspondents worldwide – all active local journalists – who provide Equal Times with original news and features.

High-profile columnists and bloggers enrich the opinion section. Contributors include leading figures from international institutions and civil society, as well as experts and socially-committed public figures.
