ABSTRACT

This presentation was given at AIAS, University of Amsterdam, on March 28th in Amsterdam. This presentation highlights the WageIndicator Foundation and FNV Mondiaal project in the garment sector in Ethiopia. The project aims for that living wages are being paid in the garment sector (1), for improvement of compliance with labour law (2), and the use and improvement of collective agreements (3). It does so by : 
1) Collecting and analysing factory cases of non-compliance with the labour law (using the Decent Work Check tool developed by WageIndicator)
- 2) Making an inventory of Collective Bargaining Agreements in garment sector, analysing the clauses and proposing (gender-specific) improvements
- 3) Mapping cost of living levels in 3 selected industrial hubs (using the Cost of Living app) à present updated living wages in the site
- 4) Bringing the results of these 3 investigations forward in sectoral debates involving as many and diverse stakeholders as possible
