CHODAWU's analysis of the labour law in Tanzania

19 April, 2012 | CHODAWU | CHODAWU
CHODAWU's opinion regarding Convention 189 in respect of Decent Work for Domestic Workers vis-à-vis Tanzania Labour Legislation.  As observed in this analysis, there is reflection that labour laws in Tanzania fall short of explicit coverage of domestic workers and cater more for the other categories of workers. CHODAWU is therefore strongly advocating for the review and amendment of the laws as herein provided, and plug out the identified lacuna and secure equal treatment of workers without exclusion of domestic workers. To this end, CHODAWU further advocate for the ratification of the ILO Convention No. 189 regarding Decent Work for Domestic Workers.
