It is a trade Department of the Communist World Federation of Trade Unions (WF1 J) . Ninety per cent of its membership is made up of teachers in State controlled unions in Communist countries. It is dominated by the Soviet and Chinese Communist teachers unions. It never publishes its budget or sources of income. FISE relations with other Communist fronts for the exploitation of labor, youth, women, and students were reaffirmed in the following resolution of the FISS administrative Committee meeting in Budapest, WF1'J, the secretariat of the FISE will develop collaboration with the* WFDI, with the WIDF and with the IUS. Comrade Erdei (Budapest) will be responsible for cooperation with the WFDI, Comrade Willa (Berlin) with the WIDF and Cassr ads Stepanek (Prague) with the IUS."
