Keywords : Organising And Workers Empowerment - Trade Union Unity

The regional workshop for capacity building of workers started this Monday, May 13 at the Headquarters of the ITUC-Africa in Lome, Togo.
This 06 day workshop aims at exchanging experiences that will contribute to the upgrading and strengthening of the capacity of national focal points.

After the Anglophone African countries last April, it was the turn of focal persons from 10 French-speaking African countries to take part in such training. They will be equipped in the area of strategic planning, monitoring, evaluation and management teams on the ground.

The program’s objective is to achieve the recruitment of at least 10,000 workers a year for each country, which will total 70,000 workers who will integrate the unions each year.

At the end of this program, it is expected that trade unions beneficiaries can see the number of members increase, which will enable them to have sufficient representation in order to influence negotiations in the decision-making bodies.

Particular emphasis will be placed on the need to introduce reforms in labor legislation in the pilot countries so that the concerns of workers in the informal economy are taken into account, in particular the minimum wage and social protection.
