In August this year, the Executive Committee met in Bogor, Indonesia for its annual meeting. We used the opportunity of bringing our leaders together to meet with members of IDWF’s Indonesia affiliate, and bring the voices of domestic workers to an important global meeting, “Labor Migration: Who Benefits? Solidarity Center Conference on Worker Rights and Shared Prosperity.”

We started with a dialogue on the global economy and the global labour movement with Shawna Bader-Blau, the Executive Director of the AFLCIO Solidarity Centre.  In this discussion, we learned how trade agreements and regional economic integration, common people are losing control of their lives to corporation with their ever-expanding power.  The result is massive unemployment and shrinking of human rights and democracy globally. We need to think about how to build solidarity with other workers, how to strengthen the IDWF as a domestic workers organization, and how to empower the labour movement overall, to be able to effectively fight back.
