Solidarity Center (SC)

Promote Decent Work Conditions and Fundamental Workplace Freedoms for all Workers – Phase VI


To strengthen the organizing and leadership capacities of trade union partners in South Asia to advocate for and advance the rights of all workers, including women, youth, migrants and other underrepresented workers, and enhance awareness and support advocacy capacity on gender-based violence and harassment (GBVH) and sustainable development goals (SDGs). The Center will provide trainings, technical assistance and facilitate coalition building between the trade unions in Sri Lanka, Maldives, India and Nepal. To complement these efforts, the Center will promote the inclusion of marginalized groups, particularly youth and women and informal sector workers, within the trade union movement to be more reflective of the workforce at large.
