About Mondiaal FNV

Mondiaal FNV is part of the FNV trade union confederation. Mondiaal FNV supports projects in over 100 countries located in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe through resources from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, of FNV and its affiliates. Mondiaal FNV works outside of the borders of its country. But it also advocates and campaigns in the Netherlands to support workers and unions in developing countries, so that their voices can be heard.

Why trade unions are important

A strong union can stand up for the improvement of working conditions and a fairer distribution of income. Mondiaal FNV supports trade unions in developing countries and defends the rights of women workers and informal workers. Respect for trade union rights is fundamental.

“Stable industrial relations, bargaining processes and dialogue are fundamental to obtaining decent work for all. There are challenges that we need to face if we are to establish genuine bargaining and dialogue processes.”
