MSN works with Southern partners to strengthen their capacity to document worker rights abuses and effectively engage with and pressure companies and government to respect worker rights.
Some 2011 highlights:
MSN continued to collaborate with Central American women’s labour rights organizations, independent monitoring groups and unions providing training, advice and support to maquila workers and/or organizing in the maquila sector. In March 2011, MSN co-sponsored the 13th Annual Colloquium of the Movement of Working and Unemployed Women’s Movement, Maria Elena Cuadra, in Managua, Nicaragua, which brought together approximately 1,500 women maquila and domestic workers to discuss the problem of physical and economic violence in the workplace and how to eliminate it.
