The Arab Federation of Trade Unions Secretariat has established this site to contribute to supporting the basic rights of workers, especially migrant workers.
In view of the fragile situation of women and youth in the workplace in the Arab region, issues relating to the protection of women and youth from all forms of discrimination and exclusion, took up much space in the contents of this site. An electronic map has been devoted to monitoring the various violations committed against workers.
In order to strengthen the trade unionist capacities, particularly among youth and women, the Executive Secretariat has focused on an e-training program.
The website provides its followers with reference documents on sustainable development issues from trade unionist point of view.
This site contains:
News about the conditions of workers in the Arab region

Cooperation programs with other organizations

The Arab Trade Union Confederation is implementing a new version of the electronic training system (E-Learning) through a YouTube channel including videos of conferences covering all legal issues and subjects related to union work.
The new Youtube channel will put online live video courses provided by trainers and experts from all fields to strengthen the skills of new trade unionists by providing them with the training necessary to succeed in their union career and obtain a skills diploma recognized in the world of union training.
