From 1-3 August, a training workshop for informal transport workers took place in Maradi, Niger. The workshop was organised by SYNATRA – the National Union of Informal Economy Workers, Niger – as part of their mentoring programme for unions working with informal workers in West Africa.
The workshop was attended by 20 participants from the regions of Maradi and Zinder, and involved a roundtable event to discuss work-related problems in the transport sector. Presentations covered several issues including trade unionism and health and safety at work.
