The EFFAT booklet "Domestic Workers in Europe Getting Organised!", co-financed by the European Commission, displays the findings of the study and shows many good practice examples of what trade unions do and can do to get domestic workers from isolation to organisation, e.g. through better laws and state-led systems, or through collective agreements with employers.

Who this booklet is for and why

  • EFFAT affiliated unions, not just at the national level but to reach out also to regions and local branches, asking the question: what more can we do to help domestic workers achieve and enjoy their rights?
  • Domestic workers’ associations and support groups in Europe, asking the question: how can we become a stronger movement by working better with and within the wider labour movement?
  • Domestic workers’ employers and their associations in Europe, asking the question: how can we help improve the wider social and employment context for domestic workers, to the benefit also of our own families - a win-win situation?
An important note:
Many trade unionists are employers of domestic workers. Unionists are not used to considering ourselves as ‘employers’. But in this situation, we are! We therefore also have a duty to employ our domestic workers properly.

The booklet is available in EN, FR, DE, IT and ESP, and provides plenty of useful resources.
