Decent work now!

Project Description
To contribute to the protection of labour rights in Armenia, Decent Work Now! project aims to reach the following overall objective: Enhancement of individual, collective, and state mechanisms of labour and social rights protection and their application in Armenia through empowerment of employees and labour unions and advocacy for legislative framework reform. The action takes on a comprehensive approach to labour rights with a philosophy that the effectiveness of state protection mechanisms and guarantees depends on how empowered and informed individual citizens and labour unions are about their rights. This approach will allow the applicant and partners to build and disseminate resources that inform citizens about their individual and collective labour rights and provide specific skills to those who decide to come together for creating unions and making use of international and local mechanisms for ensuring their right to decent work.
