In the period October 10 – 11, 2015, the second workshop for trade union representatives was held in Tuzla within the project “Strengthening the Role of Trade Unions in BiH to Combat Discrimination against Workers”. The workshop was attended by 22 representatives from 20 trade unions.
The workshop was organized by the Association for Democratic Initiatives (ADI) Sarajevo with the technical support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in collaboration with: Mediacentar Sarajevo, Center for Social Research Analitika, Rights for All and Vaša prava BiH. The workshop was attended by representatives of trade unions – trade unions’ legal services, persons most often contacted by workers for advice within the union. The aim of the two-day workshop was to raise awareness among trade union members about the forms and methods of discrimination encountered by workers and to emphasize the link between ADL and trade union rights, exchange of information and past experiences among participants on how to protect workers from discrimination, and initiating joint activities to establish a more efficient system of worker protection using existing anti-discrimination mechanisms.
