PUBLISHED BY: Women in Informal Employment: Globalizing and Organizing (WIEGO)
WHO IS THIS FOR? This report examines the human rights situation of waste pickers in six countries in Latin America.
The report contributed to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) citing violations suffered by waste pickers in Argentina, Mexico, Nicaragua and Uruguay in their annual report. A suite of workers’ materials is currently being developed to share the findings of this report with waste pickers. The report is available in Spanish.
It will be useful for those in worker education in informal and precarious sectors, study circle groups and informal/precious work NGOOs and organisations.
