Workshop on Decent Work

On February 7 AMICHOCÓ Foundation hosted the Workshop on Decent Work in Small Mining. This workshop is part of an agreement signed last year with the National Labor School (ENS, for its acronym in Spanish) for project "Fair Trade and Responsible Mining" that AMICHOCÓ is conducting in collaboration with Solidarity.

In this workshop, were invited some members of the team of the Foundation Alliance for Responsible Mining, ARM, as well as representatives of organizations supporting the project, Hernando Henao, president of ASOMINA and Marla Uribe, the labor inspector district of Segovia and Remedios, leader of the Interagency Committee for the Elimination of Child Labour. Finally, also attended by two representatives of two organizations of artisanal and small – scale mining in the region.

This activity is part of the component and Labor Rights Project aims to empower organizations in the region and the team working on the issue of decent work.

The development of the activity was as follows: First addressed the general guidelines for the construction of indicators-Identification of relevant variables and ways of measuring these variables. In a second time, will the issue of measuring decent work in Colombia, then give way to the characterization of forced labor in Colombia, with an emphasis on child labor, about progress and challenges.
