NLC Climate Change Policy
In the last decade, the NLC has been evolving through a policy of a ‘New Beginning’, which is enshrined in a vision that captures the imperative of rebuilding the movement towards a direction that makes it more relevant to its members and to the broad society at large. This vision identifies the importance of empowerment and social redemption. It is also about enhancing inter-movement linkages that can help the movement project power in the labour market.

The Rights of Migrant Workers
People travel to other countries every day for work and better living conditions. Some migrant workers carry their family members along. Others leave them behind and send money back home. Some migrant workers enter a country with all required legal and valid documents such as a contract of employment, visa, residence and work permits and all other required documents such as a medical examination certificate and a certificate of good character issued by the appropriate law enforcement entity.
