Migrant Workers & Trade Union Membership (2016)

Empowering Migrant Rights we advocate for migrants' rights, fostering well-being through personal advocacy, integration development, and collaborative campaigns. This research explores migrants' awareness of employment rights and Trade Union support, aiming to enhance their legal empowerment


Doras Luimní is a human rights NGO working to support and promote the rights of all migrants living in Limerick and the Mid-West region of Ireland. Our mission is to promote and uphold the human rights and well-being of migrants through personal advocacy, integration development and collaborative advocacy campaigns at the local and national level.

Based on the direct support work at Doras Luimní this research sought to understand if migrants were aware of their employment rights and that they can be supported through membership of the Trade Unions. While organisations like Doras Luimní advocate across a range of issues on behalf of migrants, more commonly migrants have sought legal redress through the use of private solicitors.
