An All Island Charter to Protect Migrant Workers from Exploitation and to Build Inclusive Workplaces (Download)

This charter has been produced by the Crossing Borders, Breaking Boundaries project, a PEACE IV-funded programme, managed by SEUPB. The project brought together the Irish Congress of Trade Unions, the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland, the Community Intercultural Programme, and Ulster University, to support migrant workers in NI and the border region and to promote positive relations.

Workplaces are a crucial site of integration and peace building. Exploitative working conditions are barriers to inclusion. This charter is a call from the migrant workers who participated in the Crossing Borders, Breaking Boundaries project for change, so that all people here can work, live, learn and socialise together, with dignity, respect, free from exploitation, prejudice, hate and intolerance.

 

Crossing Borders Breaking Boundaries is a €1.1 million project lead by the Migrant Rights Centre Ireland alongside the Community Intercultural Programme (CIP), the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) and Ulster University.

 It is supported by the European Union’s PEACE IV Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
