Awarding of a service contract:
Conceptualisation of the international Farm Workers Forum 2020, coordination of the preparation group, as well as development of accompanying studies and public relations work

Thematic background

Farm workers are key actors in the food system. According to ILO statistics, every third worker in the world - around 1.1 billion people - is working in agriculture. Around 40 to 50 per cent of those workers are employed. Work in agriculture is characterized by systematic violations of basic human and labour rights, including little or no right to join or be represented by a trade union and poor occupational health and safety. Agriculture ranks alongside mining and construction as the industries with highest rates of accidents. The widespread use of migrant, temporary and seasonal workers is a key feature in agriculture. 71 per cent of all child labour takes place in agriculture. This means that 108 million children are working in the sector. Many children are occupied on small, family farms but one in five is hired in commercial agriculture.

Women are entering the agricultural workforce in increasing numbers and now make up about 40 per cent of the hired workforce. Many have seasonal or temporary jobs. The precarious nature of their employment often means the denial of maternity protection and other rights and are vulnerable to sexual harassment.

This denial of farm workers' rights is systematic and deliberate. It includes:

  • In some countries it is illegal for agricultural workers to form and join trade unions;
  • In others, agricultural workers are excluded from the protection of labour legislation or have lower standards of protection;
  • Lack of collective bargaining in agriculture;
  • Less than 20 per cent of agricultural workers have access to basic social protection;
  • Only 5 per cent have access to any kind of labour inspection system.

At the same time, farm workers are the ones who put the food on the table of people both in rural and urban areas worldwide. They should be at the centre of debates about food systems, sustainable land use, climate change and global justice. In many countries, farm workers unions have developed unique forms of organizing and of union culture, as they deal with completely different situations and dynamics than unions in urban sectors.

For these reasons, Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung and the International Union of Food, Agricultural, Hotel, Restaurant, Catering, Tobacco and Allied Workers' Associations (IUF) have established a forum for an international exchange. The goal is to foster deliberation both among union representatives of farm workers and with other allies. A first Forum took place in South Africa in October 2018. It was organised by an international steering group. Link to the event: http://www.farmworkersforum.org/.

In 2020, the new Geneva office of the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung, the Association Rosa Luxemburg intends to continue this global process. Hence, the Association will co-organise another forum together with IUF as well as in cooperation with Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung's offices in Argentina, Johannesburg and Brussels. The forum will take place in Uruguay in October 2020. Building up on the first forum in 2018 and its declaration, debates will focus on how to organize along global supply chains and how to use digital technologies.

The project is initially planned until the end of December 2020. Depending on the results of the forum, an extension of several years is planned.

We intend to award a service contract for the conceptualisation of the international forum in 2020, for the coordination of the steering group and the partner work as well as development of accompanying studies and public relations work.

About Association Rosa Luxemburg

The Geneva office Association Rosa Luxemburg was founded in 2019 and will be further established throughout 2020. It will serve as the liaison office to the UN institutions in Geneva, but as well work thematically towards the issues of social rights and international labour work.

The Association Rosa Luxemburg is related to the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung e.V. in Berlin, Germany. Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung is one of the six major political foundations in the Federal Republic of Germany, tasked primarily with conducting political education both at home and abroad. The Stiftung's work adheres to the legacy of its namesake, German socialist leader Rosa Luxemburg, and seeks to represent democratic socialism with an unwavering internationalist focus. The Stiftung is committed to a radical perspective emphasizing public awareness, enlightenment and social critique. It stands in the tradition of the workers' and women's movements, as well as anti-fascism and anti-racism. Rosa- Luxemburg-Stiftung e.V. is a registered non-profit organization in Germany. The Stiftung is closely linked to Die Linke, the German Left Party.

The aim of the work of Association Rosa Luxemburg is to promote a critical analysis of society and foster networks of emancipatory political, social and cultural initiatives around Germany. Internationally, it will participate in cooperative development projects and advocate for a dialogue between the Global North and South conducted on equal footing. Like other political foundations, Association Rosa Luxemburg seeks to develop and expand the concept of political education by emphasizing a critical analysis of society as our central task, further underlined by our namesake.

Based on the firm belief that social change requires a reflective confrontation with today's capitalist society as a whole, the Association Rosa Luxemburg strives to develop alternative concepts and approaches for a comprehensive process of social transformation enabling the creation of a more united and just society. Education and training in democratic socialist politics, analysis, information and policy advice are therefore the Association Rosa Luxemburg's basic tasks.
