Workshop with trade unions and membership-based organizations on informal economy and home-based workers

A workshop for central trade unions and membership-based institutions to discuss issues and challenges related to informal economy workers in lower tiers of global supply chains, including home workers and other home-based workers.

This consultation has been planned with an objective to bring together workers’ representatives from central trade unions and membership/rights based organizations to develop common understanding, conceptual clarity, capacity building on issues related to informal economy workers and international labour standards, and labour rights and entitlements (including wages, social protection, OSH). It also aims to discuss issues, challenges, possible strategies for action and develop medium term action plan, identify future technical capacity building needs and to work towards a collective goal of reducing decent work deficits for such informal economy workers, especially women home workers engaged in global supply chains.
