Tanzania: TUICO marks 28 April demanding employers make safety the priority

The Tanzania Union of Industrial and Commercial Workers (TUICO) joins BWI in marking this year’s International Workers’ Memorial Day

TUICO is correct. Workers don’t die at work because of unexplained illnesses, and/or tragic, freak accidents. Workers are killed because employers and governments think less of their health and safety.

No less than recognising workplace health and safety as a fundamental right of all workers will enable trade unions to fully turn the tide against work-related fatal accidents and ailments. #IWMD2022

Tunisia: Call to protect migrants and refugees

Tunisia’s national trade union center UGTT, together with civil society organizations, activists and members of parliament, has called on the government to take immediate measures to ensure that migrant workers, refugees and asylum seekers enjoy full access to medical services, prevention measures and social support in the COVID-19 pandemic.

While the government agreed on April 7 to a limited number of measures including visa extensions, an April 10 appeal (available here in French) insists, in the name of solidarity, on targeted actions to fully protect the rights of non-citizens, including the right to medical services, regularization of migrants’ residency status and easing the population currently in crowded migrant detention centers with an elevated risk of contagion. Most migrant workers in Tunisia are from sub-Saharan Africa.
