In Nepal, a large number of workers are deprived of training related to their job. There is no systematic mechanism to update the knowledge and skill of workers. The lack of government policy and employers’ apathy towards the welfare of their employees has only increased the vulnerability of workers. Occasional orientation and capacity building of the workers can substantially empower them not only to perform their duty and responsibilities swiftly but also to fight for their rights according to changing trends in the labor market.
ITUC-NAC has been conducting capacity building programs such as training on the development of LIS, on the formation of OSH Policy Guidelines, on organizing training (OT), on the CBA and the Training of Trainers (ToT) in different corners of the nation, with the participation of a large number of workers from both formal and informal sectors. These programs are facilitated by trade union expert/leaders where participants are encouraged to actively get involved in floor discussion, group work and presentation. Such programs have directly benefitted more than 5,000 trade union leaders/activists across the nation.
