Migration and Slavery

Trade unions stand united against the forces of exploitation that drive people from their homelands in search of decent work opportunities. The vast majority of people that migrate are exposed to exploitation but through collective action, they are changing the rules of the game.

Modern slavery is a reality for too many people. Forced labour, bonded labour, human trafficking and child labour enter global supply chains. Solidarity is at the heart of the international trade union movement and the ITUC works to end this exploitation. The ITUC is pushing for fair recruitment of migrant workers and for the end of bonded labour systems.
