  • Resolution 27: Terminology
    as many cities around the world as possible They are not organised as passive victims of poverty but as active agents of change in their own lives and working conditions It is common for authorities to create divisions between informal traders by selectively issuing official trading permits This is a typical divide and rule strategy which keeps informal traders divided and weakens their collective struggles to improve their working conditions and livelihoods Therefore StreetNet International does not support the elitist organisational strategy of organising only informal traders with permits leaving those without permits marginalised to face continued persecution and harassment Even the internationally accepted term informal economy 1 is considered by some of StreetNet s affiliates to be a negative term regarding which we should be developing a more positive longer term vision In 2010 StreetNet adopted an International Congress resolution on the development of the Social Solidarity Economy this now guides the organisation s approach on eliminating the decent work deficits in the informal economy in through a strategy of economic transformation HEREBY RESOLVES StreetNet supports the internationally accepted notion that no worker is an illegal worker A street trader who has not been granted an official permit is not an illegal trader but a trader without a permit A migrant worker whose immigration papers are not in order is not an illegal alien but an undocumented migrant worker A worker who collects and sorts recyclable materials from other people s waste is not a scavenger but a waste recycling worker All workers formal and informal documented or undocumented with or without official permit are entitled to their rights as workers in accordance with the core Conventions of fundamental labour rights of the ILO International Labour Organisation Where informal traders or other workers in the informal economy are working in highly exploitative conditions the decent work deficits they experience daily have to be struggled against and eliminated but the dignity of such struggling workers remains intact and they do not deserve to be called illegal or black economy workers as if they were committing inherently criminal activities StreetNet International and its members appeal to all our solidarity partners to respect the dignity of all workers no matter how exploited and vulnerable by using respectful language in describing them and the work they do for a living PROPOSED SECONDED 1 ILO Resolution on Decent Work and the Informal Economy International Labour Conference 2002 World Class Cities for All Brazil Portuguese Blog There is also a portuguese version of the Blog where one can access personal updates on news and events It can be found on this link http streetnetbrasil wordpress com Latest Additions Cambodian Trade Unions oppose adoption of a new Trade Union Law Online crowd funding a new experiment of StreetNet International StreetNet affiliate from Azerbaijan helps street vendors in villages and promotes ILO Recommendation 204 Free Trade Unions of Ukraine marked a World Day for Decent Work Nothing for us Without Us NewsBox INDIA DP is irreparable scrap
