NUW visits Vanuatu National Workers Union

NUW拜訪萬那杜當地全國工人工會

Many workers from Vanuatu and other Pacific Island nations work in the fresh food supply chain in Australia, bringing fruit and vegetables to our supermarket shelves.
許多萬那杜地區的島民,近幾年開始到澳洲從事季節工的工作。而這些移工大多是到生鮮食品供應及農場工作。

Recently the NUW attended a union conference in Vanuatu held by the VNWU. The NUW is the union in Australia working to protect the right of ni-Vanuatu and other seasonal workers while they are working in Australia.
近日來,NUW代表參與了萬那杜工會在地所舉辦的研討會。NUW工會是為了保障所有抵澳工作的移工,保障所有季節工的工作權利。這當中更包括萬那杜地區的島民。

NUW Organiser George Robertson said, "the purpose of this very productive visit to Vanuatu has been to develop relationships with key stakeholders in the program to ensure they understand the work the NUW is doing on the ground for workers in Australia, and to identify ways to work together to improve conditions for seasonal workers."
NUW的工會組織者喬治●羅伯森表示,這趟拜訪之旅,除了能與萬那杜島的移工有更進一步的接觸外,也讓這些移工了解澳洲在地工會的組織型態。並且能夠有共識,為所有的季節工的勞動權利一起奮鬥。
