OKUP against wage theft
OKUP stands in solidarity with Migrant Forum in Asia at this extremely difficult time, when migrant workers’ situation has significantly worsened. OKUP shares the profound concerns that have arisen due to large scale returns, deportations, and repatriations of migrants.
Hundreds of thousands of migrant workers have returned home empty-handed with nothing but a few personal belongings and the prospects of falling further into debt and poverty.
OKUP with MFA urging governments and UN agencies to take immediate action in three main areas:
1) Establish an International Claims Commission
2) Compensation Fund at the global and national level
3) Reforming National Justice Systems
