This right ensures that the workers are allowed to uphold values that will lead to establishing fair business models and sustainable practices, standards, and policies.
The lack thereof has a domino effect on a worker’s other rights. Without this Right, other rights could be seriously neglected. Hence companies need to be honest and open about how they are providing this right to their workers.
For our twitter debate, we have invited champions of this universal human right to shed light on the issues at hand.
Apart from our panellists, we invite everyone with questions, comments, ideas and opinions to participate. Just use the hashtag #R2Unite and you can join in on the debate.
The debate will be structured in three segments around the following main questions:
What is the local situation of agricultural workers and labour unions?
For this segment of the debate Ellis Koomson of the Ghana Confederation of Labour, will elaborate on the situation in Ghana. This will also fit into a wider debate with a more global focus.
What are the obstacles to the Right to Unite?
How can this Right be safeguarded successfully?
What can citizens, consumers and organizations worldwide do to protect this right?
Your input on these topics is very welcome. We want to know your thoughts and would like to know what you believe are possible solutions.
Date: Wednesday July 4, 2012
Time: 2pm-4pm GMT+1
