In search of decent work. Migrant workers' rights: A manual for trade unionists

Migration is primarily a labour issue. It concerns the movement of workers who cross borders to find employment, as well as the necessity of equal treatment, good working conditions and rights for these workers. The purpose of this manual is to guide the trade union movement's participation in shaping migration policies by promoting sound labour migration practices and reaching out to migrant workers. It aims to ensure that migration benefits the countries of origin as well as destination countries, and both migrant and non-migrant workers.

Fair migration: Setting an ILO agenda


Report of the ILO Director General to the International Labour Conference.

Migration is growing and is likely to continue to do so. It has moved centre stage in national, regional and global policy agendas, bringing with it not only a sense of urgency in societies and among decision makers, but also a set of controversies which can be damaging to social coherence if left unaddressed. Despite the positive experiences that can and should be cited, migration is still too frequently associated with unacceptable labour abuses in the face of which inaction is an abdication of responsibility. Building on the work that has been undertaken recently in the ILO and in the multilateral system at large, there is real need and advantage in taking stock of what has been done and then identifying with greater clarity what has still to be achieved.

1. Introduction

Many veteran journalists, but not only these, surely noticed that we are all of a sudden bombarded again from all-over with mentions of Watergate. Books like George Orwell’s 1984 are on display at bookstores and an air of danger to freedom of speech and freedom of the press is spreading slowly like a dark cloud over the Western Hemisphere, raising old fears.
