LONDON - A group of domestic workers led by an award-winning Filipina activist is joining UN talks this week urging the UK government to improve their rights in the country by implementing recommendations from the International Labour Organization (ILO).
UK-based Filipino campaigner Marissa Begonia is representing Justice for Domestic Workers (J4DW), a trade union group, at the UN High Level Dialogue on International Migration and Development on October 3-4 in New York.
Begonia, a domestic worker and community leader, is pleading the British government to ratify ILO Convention 189, or Decent Work for Domestic Workers Convention, which came into effect on September 5 after two years of official discussions between workers, employers and governments. Full story
