Interactions between Workers’ Organizations and Workers in the Informal Economy: A Compendium of Practice

International Labour Organization (ILO)

This Compendium demonstrates successful interactions by workers organizations with workers in the informal economy to reduce decent work deficits in the informal economy and facilitate the transition to formality. By documenting these practical examples, the Compendium aims to make this knowledge and experience more widely available and to encourage unions to engage with the informal economy. It presents 31 recent cases showing how workers’ organizations have engaged with the informal economy. These cases, coming from different countries and industrial sectors, show the benefits for workers, enterprises and ILO member States that can result from the formalization of informal work.
