Together with the expansion of the industry, the country has also seen an increase in its migrant workforce. Over the years, workers have staged strikes over poor living and working conditions, and a lack of bargaining power and representation.
Over two thirds of the 40, workers who work in export-producing factories are migrant workers from South and South East Asia, primarily India, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. The union will have access to workers in all garment factories, where they can meet, discuss issues of concern, conduct elections, provide workers with information and raise awareness through posters and brochures in coordination with factories management.

As a further contribution to the process, Better Work Jordan sought the assistance of ILO experts in reviewing the draft proposal to ensure that the language reflected Jordan s obligations under ILO Convention Annual seniority bonuses for all workers regardless of their nationalities.
Jobs in the garment industry are largely unskilled and low paid, with long working hours. We will advise the workers on their rights and that way we help the employers. Workers were reluctant to work with unions in the PAST due to fear of employers but now the union has access to the factory workers and it also shows that the union is not working against the employers.TO hELP ThEm UNDERSTAND BETTER WhAT ThE COLLECTIVE BARGAINING PROCESS ENTAILED, hOW ThEy COULD PRESENT ThEIR INTERESTS EFFECTIVELy AND hOW CASE STUDY: COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT IN JORDAN’S GARMENT INDUSTRY 4.
