Makale özeti ve diğer detaylar.
The many working in the informal economy endure precarious work and irregular and insecure income with little or no access to the means of social protection. As the right to form unions is a fundamental human right every worker should have the protection provided by trade unions and this right must be protected by the labour law. In practice, legal restrictions and changing work patterns often make it difficult or impossible for informal workers to organize under the umbrella of a trade union. Conditions of informal work and the heterogeneity of the workforce as well as informal employment relationships are the challenges faced by trade unions which aim to organize informal workers. Therefore, trade union must be adapted to the situation of informal workers and working conditions, by targeting the membership of in particular women and young workers which are the two largest and unprotected groups in the informal economy.
