The “Domestic Workers and C189: Power and Skills to Make it Real” workshop was held in May 2019 in Dar-es-Salaam, Tanzania. The event, which was hosted by WIEGO and the IDWF, gathered representatives of all IDWF affiliates across Africa.

This workshop was a follow up to the Domestic Workers and C189: Making it Real workshop that was held in Nairobi, Kenya in June 2018.

Workshop Objectives

The 'Domestic Workers and C189: Power and Skills to Make it Real' workshop sought to strengthen worker leaders' skills in negotiating with employers and with the government. Its aims were to help domestic leaders to:

  • Share how they implemented learnings from the June 2018 Workshop
  • Review the revised Toolkit: C189- Making it real
  • Understand more about individual and collective negotiations in this sector
  • Share experiences of individual and collective negotiations
  • Understand the steps, processes and power relations involved in individual and collective negotiations
  • Build skills to help them effectively negotiate with employers, government and others that affect the lives of domestic workers
