The General Union Brief Story

 

A Group of the academic researchers and professors, who are simultaneously social activists, all over the world were united to fill the structural gaps in the body of the international nongovernmental organizations NGOs.

It was believed initially that, this idea started independently at a meeting on dinner in Montreal (Canada) at the beginning of 2010 among Professors Sally Christine, Karen Espinosa, and Samy Jimson. They all recognized the importance and urgency of filling those structural gaps in the body of the international nongovernmental organizations. They put an initial declaration and send it to their colleagues and friends all over the world. Massive responses were received, but unfortunately most of them were not serious just supporting the idea and offering to join after formation of the proposed unions.

However, some very serious replies were received; they clarified some related facts of utmost importance.

A strategic vision was introduced by two other Founders namely, Professor Sologon Notten, and Lecturer Sunwoong Choi. An integrated development plan was presented by Researcher Chisako Hanabusa. Another Economic Vision was developed by Professor Adam Liebeherr.

A very interesting fact was discovered by Lecturer Sunwoong Choi about the origin of this idea. He discovered that, an earlier regional trial about this idea was started in Cairo, Egypt by the Lecturer Arafa Radwan at 2000, i.e. ten years earlier, when he founded the Researchers Union in Egypt and called for foundation of analogous unions in other countries, especially Arabian and African Countries, and eventually international unions of those national professional and non-professional unions.

The necessary task group of the founders was completed and the foundation conference was held in Montreal (Canada) in Friday 3rd December 2010, the founders or their representatives issued the initial declarations about their intention to establish those unions. The tasks were distributed and the plan of actions was decided. The targets and services for the unions were initially adopted, yet they are still subjected to additions or modifications.
