Abstract:
Strategic areas where trade unions have a natural disposition to make a difference to the global effort to fight child labour identified in this manual include, influencing national socio-economic policies through engagement with governments; using organising strategies and collective bargaining as a means of tackling child labour; using the ILO supervisory system to effect change in national laws and practices dealing with child labour; and participation in national and international campaigns against child labour.

The manual also provides unions with an up-to-date understanding of what child labour is today and the need for an official trade union policy to tackle it. Another important novelty of this manual is that it presents a wide array of examples of concrete trade union actions to tackle child labour.
