Training workshop on labour migration and trade unions at the request of the Commission des Syndicats de Travailleurs de l’Océan Indien (CSTOI)

In collaboration with ACTRAV and the ILO Country Office in Madagascar, the ILO DWT Pretoria offered a two-day training workshop on labour migration to this platform of Indian Ocean trade unions in order to sensitize and train unionists to the protection of migrant workers from a Decent Work and Fair Migration perspective. The workshop was attended by 25 participants from the most representative unions of each territory constitutive of the CSTOI (4 from Mauritian unions; 3 from Mayotte; 2 from Reunion; 1 from Seychelles; 2 from Comores; 13 from Madagascar; 11 of whom were women). An action plan including labour migration activities was drafted and adopted by all members. In addition to updating CSTOI priority actions, it aligns to ILO standards and frameworks on labour migration, as well as to the African Union Joint Labour Migration Programme and SADC Labour Migration Policy Framework.
