About

Workers, especially migrant workers, can be at risk of a range of violations of human and labour rights during the recruitment process. The FRI supports and partners with trade unions to advance fair recruitment, protect workers’ rights, promote empowerment and organization.  Under this thematic focus members will learn about trade unions strategies and promising practices on organizing migrant workers, as well as on monitoring recruitment practices and tackle recruitment related abuses. In partnership with the International Trade Union Confederation, tools such as the ITUC recruitment Advisor, research materials and tools will be shared and promoted.

Objectives

Members will have opportunities to engage with workers organizations globally, share experiences, challenges and opportunities in organizing migrant workers and effectively address recruitment related challenges and abuses.  The objective under this thematic are to enhance awareness and capacities of workers organizations to support and organize migrant workers, provide them with effective services in case of recruitment related abuses, better monitor recruitment practices and effectively engage with government and employers organizations for regulatory and policy reform.
