Combatting Unacceptable Forms of Work

In recent years, a number of graphic reports have triggered increased awareness of the serious human and labour rights abuses committed in the Thai commercial fishing and seafood processing industries, particularly against migrant workers. The Thai Government, industry, workers’ organizations and civil society organizations have all stepped up efforts to respond to these abuses. This EU-funded ILO project works closely with these partners towards the prevention and reduction of unacceptable forms of work in the Thai fishing and seafood processing sectors.

Achieving ‘Decent Work’ in Thailand’s Fishing Industry

Decent Work Day is celebrated around the world to draw attention again to the need for work that is productive, that delivers a fair income and equally importantly work in which the protection of labour rights is a fundamental and irreplaceable element of national policies and development strategies.
