Collective Struggles, Solidarity Forever

As the world commemorated the International Workers’ Day back in May, women workers across Asia and the Pacific united to continue their fight for workers’ rights, and push for their demands on social protection and decent work. Feminist and labour organisations put forward their demands for employers and governments to provide decent work and living wages and ensure social protection of workers, and for governments to strengthen workers’ participatory democracy and ratify International Labour Organisation (ILO) conventions No. 87 and 98 on rights to organise and collective bargaining, No. 189 (on domestic workers protection), 177 (concerning home-based workers), and 190 (on violence and harassment). We speak to activists Sring Atin of the Indonesian Migrant Workers Union, Kamz Deligente of the Center for Trade Union and Human Rights, and Edz dela Cruz, of the Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development, to find out more.
