TRADE UNION PROTECTIONS FOR SEX WORKERS’ MTG, WSF – BRAZIL

information from the WSFDiscuss** email list

A meeting is being organized by colleagues at the Karnataka Sex Workers Union and the New Trade Union Initiative (NTUI, India) on Trade Union Protections for Sex Workers at the WSF. There will be one session on the 30th Jan, on “Trafficking, Migration and Sex Work,” and an all-day meeting on the 31st Jan, with three panels on “Trade Unions and Sex Work.” These sessions are open to all WSF participants.

In addition, they are sponsoring a CLOSED meeting on this issue on February 1. It is for those trade unions who, at a minimum, come from an understanding that workers in the sex sector are entitled to basic labor rights, including the right to organize and bargain collectively, to be free of discrimination and to be free from forced labor. It is also for sex worker participants who are committed to exploring a union strategy (maybe in addition to other strategies of collectivization). If you think you may be interested in the closed session, please do contact the Karnataka Sex Workers Union, at sexworkersunion@gmail.com

**WSFDiscuss is an open and unmoderated forum for the exchange of information and views on the experience, practise, and theory of the World Social Forum at any level (local, national, regional, and global) and on related social and political movements and issues.
