Sign the pledge 'My Fair Home'!
On 16 June is International Domestic Workers’ Day, and EFFAT, in collaboration with IDWF, wants to re-launch the “My Fair Home” Campaign on that day. We are calling upon all EFFAT affiliated trade unions to ask their officials (paid staff) and activists (elected unionists) who use the services of domestic workers to sign the My Fair Home pledge to ensure that their home is a fair workplace.
This is the pledge we are asking to sign:
I pledge to uphold the principles of ILO Convention 189, and protect and promote the rights of domestic workers by taking the following actions:
o I will ensure that fair wages are paid to the domestic workers I employ (at least the minimum wage), and that domestic workers have reasonable work hours and time to rest.
o I will negotiate the terms and conditions of employment with the domestic workers I employ, ensuring a mutual understanding through a written agreement.
o I will ensure that the domestic workers I employ have access to decent healthcare.
o I will actively ensure a work environment that is free from abuse, harassment and violence.
o I will ensure that the domestic workers I employ enjoy decent living conditions.
o I will ensure that the domestic workers I employ can benefit from a good work-life balance.
