What We Do
NTUI affiliates from the informal and formal sectors engage with employers and the state on different issues of collective bargaining and regulation of employment. The engagement includes organising workers, issue based struggles, campaigns for legislation on labour rights, education for workplace and organisational democracy and many others.
Important affiliate engagements include struggles around minimum wage legislation and implementation of legislation; organisation in the formal sector and of contract labour; organising rural workers and the NREGA; collective bargaining struggles in the formal and informal sector. Unionising among women workers and issues of trade union organisation for women is an important concern.
Major campaigns at the local and national levels include campaign for Universal Social Security; Right to Association issues; Occupation Health and Safety and Minimum Wage.
Unions also engage in research around issues of concern, and document struggles and campaigns. Research and documentation feed into activist and cadre training.
