Supporting Migrant Workers
Due to the sinking gains from agricultural work, millions of people in India leave their rural homes every year in order to find work in urban areas. Our project with the Centre for Labour Research and Action (CLRA) includes research papers about issues these workers have to face and to enable them to help themselves. The main areas of work are in Western India, namely in Gujarat.
CLRA promotes workers' rights in the vast informal sector economy of India and disseminates key principles of organizing workers at the grass root level so that they can access their entitlements. CLRA primary focus areas are research, mapping, capacity building trainings amongst workers collectives, brick kilns workers, construction workers, sugarcane harvesting workers, agriculture sector, cotton ginning, other informal and migrant workers including informal industrial workers.
Our cooperation with the Centre for Labour Research and Action includes research papers, trainings, developing seasonal migration atlas, Unorganized Labor Action School (ULAS). Our focus is on working with migrant workers and informal workers and their collectives directly. CLRA uses the obtained insights from the previous researches, mappings and documentation to advocate concrete interventions concerning the problems and struggles of the workers.
