Occupational safety and health (OSH) and fair wages are two important components of the labour protection mentioned in the 2008 Social Justice Declaration. Healthy and safe working conditions, collective bargaining and policies relating to wages and earnings, working hours and other work-related matters should be such as to ensure a just share of the fruits of progress, growth and productivity for all workers, men and women without discrimination, while guaranteeing effective worker participation in an environment characterized by freedom of association. This activity, intended by ACTRAV to strengthen trade-union capacities in these important areas, will take advantage of the opportunity for exchanges of experience between countries on different continents. The course aims to build the capacities of trade-union leaders in the areas of wage policy, minimum wages, OSH and collective bargaining, including equity plans, and to formulate collective-bargaining strategies to work for wage-led development policies.
