    and urban including regulated access for the use of public spaces and access to public natural resources for subsistence livelihoods and then after a lot of fighting and losing the issue in other parts of the text we finally got a Clause in the Preamble saying that existing livelihoods of workers in the informal economy should be preserved during the process of the transition to formalisation By the end of the week there should be the latest version of what has been agreed for presentation to the plenary on Friday where the Conference will vote on the adoption of the Recommendation Ms Mponda said there are major challenges that face the ILO in continuing to remain relevant in this future work scenario 1 Becoming more effective at local government level Like all United Nations bodies the ILO works at two levels international and national Currently ILO instruments do not address the role and responsibilities of local government save for general pronouncements about the importance of different levels of government coordinating their work 2 Adapting tripartite structures to become more inclusive of new kinds of workers In the years since StreetNet was first accredited to attend the International Labour Conference in 2004 we have made many efforts to get recognition for the rights of own account workers to be directly represented by their own democratically elected negotiators in collective negotiations with the appropriate negotiations counterparts who hold power over their working conditions and these are not employers but authorities such as local government authorities However our experience is that incumbent representatives of the traditional employed workforce are not yet ready grasp the challenge of establishing new types of bargaining forums which are more representative of the workers in the informal economy and new forms of work least of all self employed workers Our second challenge to the ILO for the next centenary is to find ways for tripartite structures to adapt so as to increase their level of representation of workers in these new forms of work For the full speech CLICK here 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 it say activists Times of India 10 April 2015 TANZANIA College plans to identify trade opportunities for hawkers Daily News 10 April 2015 by Ludovick Kazoka INDIA No street vendors cycle rickshaws in Lajpat Nagar market NGT Zee News 8 April 2015 by PTI New Delhi BOTSWANA EDD is the way to go Mmegi Online 8 April 2015 USA Five Courses

  • Disappointing setback for marginalised workers in informal economy
    informal economy do not enjoy this right However the conference committee on transitions from the informal to the formal economy today agreed to limit the right of workers to participate in collective negotiations according to national practice In effect this means that there will be no change to the status of marginalisation and social exclusion of workers in the informal economy while others will continue to speak on their behalf in the exclusive negotiations forums which exist in many countries This is a most disappointing setback for the workers of the world in the informal economy who had participated in good faith in the preparations for this Recommendation in the hope that this would be a tool to assist them to now enjoy the same rights previously denied to them as other workers A luta continua Nothing for Us Without Us 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 it say activists Times of India 10 April 2015 TANZANIA College plans to identify trade opportunities for hawkers Daily News 10 April 2015 by Ludovick Kazoka INDIA No street vendors cycle rickshaws in Lajpat Nagar market NGT Zee News 8 April 2015 by PTI New Delhi BOTSWANA EDD is the way to go Mmegi Online 8 April 2015 USA Five Courses Hawkers

    be participating in the Works Group of the conference Pat Horn who will be working with the worker delegates said that in 2014 and 2015 StreetNet has been playing a key role in the ILC discussions for a new ILO Recommendation on transitions from the informal to the formal economy The new Recommendation can potentially become an effective tool in improving the lives of street vendors and informal traders around the world The Recommendation will be an official guideline which governments can use to address the needs of the informal workers Formalisation must offer benefits and protections not simply imposing the costs of becoming formal It must restore the universal rights from which workers in the informal economy have been marginalised by the neo liberal model of governance over the past 40 years and reintegrate them into legal and regulatory frameworks said Horn Formalisation should include the following Organising and labour rights voice and bargaining power legal identity and standing economic rights and social protection The new ILO Recommendation on the Transitions from the Informal to the Formal Economy needs to highlight the following points Preserve existing livelihoods during the process of transition The formalisation of the informal economy will be a gradual process It is therefore emphasised that provisions be instituted for preserving sustainable livelihoods while avoiding measures which could inadvertently destroy existing livelihoods of informal workers and economic units during the transition to formalisation Enhance inclusive participation of workers in the informal economy in collective bargaining Direct inclusion in collective bargaining at all levels including tripartite forums This may require creation of new bargaining forums Ensure economic rights and access Free access to public space with agreement with authorities on public space utilisation including for purposes of economic activities and regulated access to natural resources The working poor need and demand a wide range of labour commercial and land use rights in order to secure their livelihoods and make their economic activities more productive Transition of informal to formal economy should be a continuous process to ensure proper integration Governments need to also work with informal workers eliminating unnecessary red tape for them as this would make their ability to work even more difficult Many of the informal workers are in these positions due to the fact there is poverty and a shortage of work Until the transition has been completed informal workers are able to earn a living in the informal economy 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
