Natacha David, ICFTU, 2002. Solidarity with migrant workers is helping trade unions to get back to the basic principles of the labour movement.
The ILO Bureau for Workers' Activities has developed a model trade union cooperation agreement with a view to facilitating joint activities on migrant workers' rights by trade unions from countries of origin and those in countries of destination. The agreement was adopted by trade unions at an international workshop in Amman in which the ITUC participated.
