He said, “I make substantial commitments to ITUC Brussels and ITUC Singapore, yet these stores are never utilized for our own advancement, yet utilized by the ITUC for its own particular purposes. INTUC pays 18 lacs every year to ITUC, which is a gigantic sum by any benchmarks. Truly speaking, I have my grievances with ITUC. Our laborers ought to get association in benefits. All things considered, ITUC is living on our commitments. How much power have they got, what would they be able to do?”
Inquiries have likewise been raised about ITUC frequently moving its center from its prime obligation of displaying solidarity with workforces around the globe, and rather, censuring frameworks of administration in whole.
Reddy said, “I don’t need global individuals to come and meddle with my work, in light of the fact that just solidarity doesn’t help. I must claim association with three crores 30 lakh workforce, my own stores. I won’t acknowledge servitude for cash or guarantee to help in our own reason.”
“Our specialists are living in far flung towns, and we have Rs.20 crore store in settled store. We are not requesting any dole from anybody,” Reddy included.

They are more worried about the issues of the created countries, the generously compensated laborers. They ought to deal with the hobbies of Asia and Africa, and other poor nations”.
“What is the point in being partnered to ITUC? What is the reason? We are subsidiary just to recognize ourselves with the global work development, there’s nothing more to it. It is just mental; it doesn’t have any genuine effect to us.”
Virjesh Upadhyay, general secretary of the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, additionally voiced his protest on the ITUC’s intruding nature.
“ITUC, being the biggest confederated body of the exchange unions of the world, is confronting believability issues. They are losing their importance. They are not doing what they should do. Like some NGOs in India have been banned for harming the economy, we are requesting that ITUC additionally be banned on the grounds that they are not serving Indian concerns. They are doing plans of different nations and associations.”
Misutilisation of trusts has been the focal topic in each feedback of ITUC. They have likewise been supposedly blamed for procuring the administrations of Essential Media Communications (EMC), an Australian firm, to offer support to their different battles, particularly against Gulf nations, on online networking.
It is being accounted for that they have professedly likewise paid a huge number of dollars to different offices to practice comparative orders.
