Workers' empowerment

To ensure that policy change is sustained and reflects the actual needs and interests of migrant workers, FAIRWAY will engage with labour movements to advance migrant workers’ representation, organization, and participation in dialogue at national, interregional, and regional level. To ensure continuity of representation and protection of migrant workers across the migration cycle, FAIRWAY will build trust and mutual understanding between trade unions across corridors through joint actions and, where beneficial, bilateral social partner agreements.

The programme will engage Global Union Federations as implementing partners, to ensure a tailored approach to organizing for the programme’s priority sectors including with the International Domestic Workers’ Federation and Building and Wood Workers’ International. In countries of origin in Africa, the programme will also engage the most representative national union federations to support trade union action to protect migrant workers and to engage in policy dialogues.
