Pakistan Labour Federation joins campaign to end violence at work

14 February 2018
PSI affiliate, the All Pakistan Labour Federation (APLF) held a gathering on 14 February on “STOP Gender-Based Violence at Work” as part of its work on gender equality in the Balochistan Province.

The APFL is the only national-level union based in the Balochistan province where women represent only 4.41% of the total workforce and earn, on average, 44% less than men.

The union has established four new trade unions for women home-based workers and mobilised workers to initiate a provincial all women’s wing in the labour federation. The union is now looking to find ways of increasing the collective bargaining power of home-based workers.
