Since law changes in 2011 workers in Myanmar have been allowed to form unions for the first time in decades. However many of their leaders are young and have little knowledge about unions or how to unionise effectively. UnionAID is funding three separate projects to develop effective unions in Myanmar. Mapping of work conditions as well as training of union leaders is being provided to organise and build the capacity of new unions of seafarers, bus drivers, rickshaw drivers, railway workers and hotel workers. These new unions will be sustainable and able to advocate and bargain for better wages and conditions for workers in Myanmar.
