Labour Resolutions to Uphold Dignity of (Im)migrant




No One is Illegal-Vancouver


Please find below draft resolutions based on the Migrant Labour Roundtable that NOII hosted on April 21, 2007. The roundtable was attended by (im)migrant community members and organizers as well as trade union representatives. Representatives included delegates from BC Construction and Trades Council, BC Government Employees Union, BC Nurses Union, BC Teachers Federation, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, Canadian Union of Public Employees BC, Comite for Amnesty and Justice Seattle, Hospital Employees Union, Iranian Federation of Refugees, Justicia for Migrant Workers, No One is Illegal, PICS, Public Service Alliance of Canada, South Asian Network for Secularism and Democracy, STATUS Coalition, Trade Union Research Bureau, Vancouver Distric Labour Council, and others. [Please note that these are for affiliation purposes only and do not indicate endorsements for the resolutions.]

The goal of the roundtable was to articulate a comprehensive framework linking temporary foreign worker programs to the struggle for labour rights and the struggle for human mobility. The draft resolutions are based on this diaologue and are a template which you may find useful and wish to adapt. Any feedback or thoughts are also much appreciated. Thanks, NOII-Van.
