JOIN US! “Women Workers Unite!: Uphold Worker’s Right to Organize and Freedom of Association” on January 23, 2023, at 6 PM Bangkok Time via Zoom.
Women contribute significantly to economic production and the country’s development through their participation in manufacturing, industry, and agricultural sectors, many face job insecurity, low wages, and poor working conditions. Worse, many workers become victims of threats and harassment in the course of their work to organize fellows into trade unions and workers’ organizations.
The series of attacks against unionists and activist workers in the Philippines has prompted the groups to file cases at the International Labor Organization to investigate and obligate the government to take steps to ensure that workers’ rights to association and organizing are protected. With much clamor from these groups, the High-Level Tripartite Mission of the ILO will go to the Philippines on July 23 to 27, to look into the serious violations of ILO Convention 87 (Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organise Convention).
