From Private Homes to Public Action

By 12th February 2013 February 12th, 2020 No Comments

In 2003, a small group of domestic workers met in the MRCI offices one Sunday evening, forming the Domestic Workers Action Group (DWAG). Ten years later, well over 300 domestic workers are active members of DWAG.

In that decade, DWAG has changed national policy and transformed individual lives by organising, protesting and campaigning, working with Government representatives, trade unions, State bodies and national and international organisations. Above all, they have supported each other through private troubles and collective challenges.
