Core Labour Standards Plus – No More Trade Deals Without Binding & Enforceable Labour Provision
More spare time, better pay, safer workplaces: The CLS+ project by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in Asia aims to better the working conditions for workers in manufacturing industries integrated in global supply chains. Labour standards need to go beyond fundamental labour rights.
Take a look at the label on the outfit you are wearing, and the chances are at least one of the items was made in Asia. One reason for this is a series of trade pacts that gave developing Asian nations preferential access to markets in the European Union and the United States. Thanks to such agreements, countries such as Bangladesh, Cambodia, Pakistan and Vietnam are today deeply integrated into global supply chains.

Training on "Vietnam Trade Unions Role in the Implementation of the National strategy on Green Growth"
A training workshop on participatory planning for trade unionists from 9 provinces and the Vietnam General Confederation of Labour is carried out in Quy Nhon from 12 till 16.12.2016.
Despite of the weather conditions and worrisome thoughts about floods in central Vietnam, the participants are committed to actively engage in the training activities. Though this could be the first time these people practicing a bottom-up approach, by the end of this training, they would be able to facilitate planing sessions in local companies with the participation of all key stakeholders, e.g. representatives from management board, workers, technical staff, and trade unions.
