Fair Labour Migrant Agreement

Sep 20, 2021 von

This chapter deals with a provisional revision of bilateral agreements on labour immigration in the light of human and workers` rights. The focus is on labour immigration agreements, unlike other bilateral agreements adopted by States that may affect migrant workers, such as readmission agreements or agreements on the coordination of social security schemes. The issue of social security, however, is particularly important for migrant workers, as discussed below. This revision is provisional, as the chapter does not provide for a systematic analysis of a comprehensive set of such agreements, but only agreements selected in regions of the world characterized by „corridors“ of significant labour immigration, and in particular agreements between the countries of Europe and Africa, as well as between the countries of the Middle East and South and South and South-East Asia. Last year, Recruitment was the first investment firm to sign a number of ethical standards for hiring a workforce. FIRST Union General Secretary Dennis Maga said Filipino migrant workers in the construction sector face some terrible human and labor violations, and this agreement is timely. WELLINGTON 15 May 2019 – A pioneering agreement that will serve as a model for New Zealand employers to ensure that Filipino migrant workers, particularly in the construction sector, are protected from workplace exploitation and other abuses, was signed on 3 May 2019 at the Philippine Embassy in Wellington. The Fair Labour Migrant Agreement (FLMA) was signed between ExtraStaff Management Ltd, a New Zealand recruitment agency, and FIRST Union – Union Network of Migrants (UNMIG) to protect migrant workers while allowing companies to make ethical and legally binding commitments to workers.
