Trade unions endorse action plan to defend migrant rights

Brussels, 15 December 2006 (ITUC Online): As International Migrants Day (18 December) approaches, the International Trade Union Confederation today reiterated its determination to prioritise the fight for the respect of migrants’ rights.

At a seminar that brought them together for four days in Brussels, some 60 trade unionists and representatives of international organizations defined their priorities and methods for implementing a concrete action plan with a view to better organising migrants, defending and promoting their rights and improving their working conditions.  Emphasis was placed on gender since female migrant workers account for a significant proportion of migrant labour and are particularly vulnerable to discrimination.
