Crossing the Divide: Informal Workers and Trade Unions Building Power

FES Crossing the divide

GLI Manchester is pleased to announce that the paper ‘Crossing the Divide: Informal Workers and Trade Unions Building power’ is now available to view and download.

The paper reflects experiences and policies from examples of organisations across the spectrum of those with an interest in relationships between informal worker organisations and the trade union movement. This includes both international and national organisations, and national trade union centres and national sector-based unions and associations. The major focus is on informal worker organisation in Asia, Africa and Latin America, but includes some perspectives from organisations in the global North representing precarious and informal workers.

The paper is available to read in English and in French.

The paper was produced by GLI Manchester for the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) as a direct follow-up to the Trade Unions in Transformation project of the FES Global Trade Union Programme.
