Organising and training in the hotel and restaurant sector in Tanzania and Zambia
The programme was initiated by the Norwegian Hotel and Restaurant Workers' Union who wanted to assist their sister union in Tanzania. Through IUF, Zambia also participated in the programme. The needs for membership recruitment and training on organising and collective bargaining were already identified by discussions between LO and the hotel unions in Tanzania and Zambia. The objective has been to increase the membership of the two unions. To increase the capacity of the unions, shop stewards were trained in organizing and collective bargaining. In addition women seminars were organized.
