Mozambique: Project Support to the Programme Promoting Decent Work

Maputo — In the framework of the Project for the Promotion of Decent Work Programme (2010-2012) activities of the International Labour Organization, televised debates on issues related to gender equality, labor rights and decent work will take place.

These discussions are expected to raise awareness on decent work and in particular the role of women in the labour market by promoting the implementation of ILO conventions already ratified by the Government of Mozambique (Convention 100 on 'Equal remuneration' and Convention 111 on 'Non-discrimination in respect of employment and occupation') and advocating the ratification of the Convention on 'Maternity protection' (Convention 183) and 'Workers with family responsibilities' (Convention 156).

To materialize these activities, STV will invite key representatives of government and social partners to participate in group discussions.

CTA calls for massive participation of all stakeholders related to the promotion of decent work in particular employers' organizations, trade unions, women's committees and working women's organizations to participate actively in discussions.
