Workers need to know their rights
Our activities in this field focus on the situation of workers in the informal sector as well as on irregular and precarious working conditions in the South Asian region. With our partners, we are organising conferences, workshops, seminars and networking meetings. These activities are primarily geared towards labour activists, who act as multiplicators and can pass their experience and expertise on to the workers in the factories or the activists working at the grassroots level. RLS is also working with academic institutions that conduct research on the working conditions of precarious or informally employed workers.

The production of goods is globalised, but the workers in the Global South are still isolated. We focus on helping workers to get together and form support networks. So that their voices are heard all over.
Rajiv Kumar - Project Manager
In addition, we are supporting the creation of a network of unions and workers' rights institution in South Asia and internationally. Facilitating and supporting the intensive communication and exchange between activist from various South Asian countries with each other, as well as with unions and activists in the Global North is therefore another important area of our work.
