resolutions on finances
The International Congress for the Refoundation of the Fourth International
considers that the political criteria with which it faces the question of
resources is the consideration first of all of the tasks which should be carried
out; on the basis of these tasks the amount of resources and the method of
obtaining them is to be determined.
The tasks which should be financed by the central budget of the CRFI are
essentially: a) the functioning of the statutory bodies; b) the publication of
the international magazine and the international internal bulletin; and c)
travel in connection with construction related activity of the CRFI.
All the national sections and sympathizing organizations should contribute to
the central fund on the basis of the number of their militants.
The per capita amount, for each militant, that each section or sympathizing
organization should contribute will be established by the Executive (Secretariat)
as a function of the various levels of wages and of the cost of living for the
working class and the exploited sectors of the various countries and of the
percentage of unemployed and youth without income of the sections and
participating organizations. For this purpose, the following parameters will be
taken into consideration for each country: minimum wage, average wage, the wages
of a given category of workers (for example, the starting salary of a primary
school teacher) or a weighted consideration of these parameters.
