Asia-Pacific: On 28 April, take action to help combat COVID-19 – APHEDA

APHEDA Executive Officer Kate Lee reports on International Workers’ Memorial Day activities in the Asia/Pacific region.

“Tomorrow, on International Workers’ Memorial Day, we will be remembering our sisters and brothers around the globe who have died or been injured while at work.

“And in this time of crisis, we are highlighting the life-saving work of workplace health and safety campaigners who are stopping the COVID-19 pandemic in their workplaces and communities.

“Across the globe, our partner unions and community organisations are mobilising to help spread quality information on how to stay safe from the virus.

“In Indonesia, our partner organisation is working with low-income neighbourhoods of street vendors, waste pickers, and home-based workers, and they are providing life-saving protective equipment to high-risk workers.

“And in Thailand, our partner organisation is on the airwaves broadcasting crisis updates to communities of migrant workers who cannot otherwise access quality information in their own language.

“Tomorrow, you can take action on International Workers’ Memorial Day by sharing a social media message in support of the front-line workers who are helping stop the spread of the Coronavirus.

“You can also show your solidarity with workplace health and safety activists in vulnerable communities by contributing to the Union Aid Abroad – APHEDA Coronavirus Solidarity Fund.

“If you have already made a donation, tomorrow please share the appeal on social media with your workmates, friends, and family, as we remember our loved ones and our workmates who have lost their lives at work.

“In Unity,  Kate Lee
Executive Officer”

Indonesia: 28 April interview with Serbuk member Ardan aka Kiting

(English)

I am Kiting from Indonesian Construction Workers Union (SBKI) and I am an informal worker

I hope for K3 (Occupational Safety and Health / OSH) to be the main issue because K3 is a human right and therefore can not create a safe workplace

BWI affiliates can make the K3 related issues their key issue

(Français)

Je suis Kiting du SBKI (syndicat des travailleurs de la construction en indonésie, membre du SERBUK) et je suis un travailleur informel.

Depending on the quotes, there are questions on the santé et la sécurité au travail (SST; également appélée K3 en Indonésie), the principal author of the mondial car il s’agit d’un droit humain, à même de garantir la sécurité du lieu de travail.

J’espère que tous les affiliés de l’IBB pourront faire de la K3 leur priorityité absolue.

Longue vie au SERBUK.

(Español)

Soy Kiting, del SBKI (Sindicato Indonesio de Trabajadores de la Construcción, miembro de SERBUK) y soy un trabajador informal.

Espero que el K3 (cuestiones sobre salud y seguridad ocupacional) sea el principal as well as el mundo entero porque el K3 es and Derecho Humano y, por lo tanto, el K3 puede lograr un lugar de trabajo seguro.

Misperanza es que to dos los afiliados de la ICM puedan hacer que las cuestiones en torno al K3 se conviertan en su tema clave.

¡Qué viva SERBUK!

(German)

I’m Kiting from the Indonesian Construction Union SBKI (a member of SERBUK) and I work in an informal employment relationship.

I hope that health and safety at work (health and safety at work, Keselamatan dan Kesehatan Kerja or K3) will become a major issue around the world, because health and safety is a human right and therefore K3 can contribute to a safe workplace.

My hope is that all BWI affiliates will prioritize K3-related topics.

Long live SERBUK
