Global Workers Justice Alliance signs Memorandum of Understanding with Oaxaca State Government 
 
Global Workers has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Oaxacan state government to (a) secure access to portable justice for migrant workers victims of abuses while working in the U.S., (b) educate temporary workers about their rights, and (c) to prevent abuses and fraud during the recruitment of temporary workers in Oaxaca.
 
In coordination with the Instituto Oaxaqueño de Atención (IOAM), and our defender organization Frente Indigena de Organizaciones Binacionales (FIOB), we will bring Know Your Rights information to migrant workers before they leave their communities of origin. 
 
Around 40% of Oaxaca’s population is indigenous and part of this population does not speak Spanish, which makes them more vulnerable to abuses by recruiters. This is why it is key to work with the local government to respond to the problems and challenges faced by migrant workers from their communities.
