In order to ensure fair recruitment that reduces the vulnerability of workers to forced labour, trade unions in different countries and regions have been actively working to promote International Labour Organization (ILO) General Principles & Operational Guidelines for Fair Recruitment and the Forced Labour Protocol (P29). This work has entailed engaging in social dialogue and tripartite discussions on recruitment processes, including the recruitment of migrant workers, as well as influencing national legislation and policies on fair recruitment and fair migration. At the grassroots level, trade unions have also worked on raising awareness and protecting workers’ rights by informing and organising workers, as well as identifying and reporting abuses and violence committed against them.

Here we offer a recap of actions taken in 2022 by ITUC, its affiliates and partner organisations to advance fair recruitment to end forced labour. Check our Newsletter now!
