Description

Description

This blended trade-union training course aims to foster a better understanding of the challenges of global labour migration. It will help in shaping trade-union strategies and actions to address the decent work deficits faced by migrant workers and their families. The aim is to enable trade unions to effectively participate in developing pathways, policies, standards and programmes for fair and safe labour migration, influencing labour migration processes through tripartism and social dialogue, and the ratification and implementation of ILO labour migration standards (C97 and C143). Experts will provide input and lead the discussions and learning sessions on the relevant ILO conventions, the UN's Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration, and other international instruments that promote a rights-based approach to the governance of labour migration. Specialists and practitioners will share information, experience and good practices in providing critical services to migrant workers through union-managed migrant resource centres, harnessing inter-union partnerships and networks, organizing collective bargaining, and initiating bi-partite dialogue with employers' organizations and other stakeholders. This blended course includes a three-week, tutor-guided distance-learning component and a five-day face-to-face training course.
