This course aims to strengthen trade unions' capacities to defend and promote the rights of migrant workers within the frameworks of the ILO's Fair Migration Agenda 2014 and Fair Recruitment Initiative, and the DWCPs and SDGs processes. The course will assist in the shaping of trade union strategies and actions on migrant workers' rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining, the basic building blocks for ensuring civil liberties and social and economic progress. The main expected outcomes of this course are improvements in decent working conditions for migrant workers, healthier labour markets and fairer societies. The course will also assist in the strengthening of union networks engaged in facilitating the exchange of experiences and sharing of information regarding labour migration.
The course is intended for office bearers, including research officers, labour economists and educators, aged 45 or under, of national or industry-level unions directly responsible for issues concerning labour migration, domestic workers and other categories of workers in vulnerable situations.
