On June 4th 2012 members of the National Union of Domestic Employees (NUDE) lobbied members of Parliament by presenting them with a petition urging Parliament to enact legislation enabling the ratification of ILO convention 189 which eliminates discrimination against domestic workers in the laws governing industrial relations.

Convention 189 was adopted by the International Labour Organisation last June with the support of the government of T&T. Yet nowhere on the government's legislative agenda is enabling legislation given the priority it deserves.

Ida Le Blanc, General Secretary of the National Union of Domestic Employees of Trinidad and Tobago (NUDE) spoke to Comrade Rae Samuel of the National Workers Union about NUDE's effort to have Convention 189 ratified by the legislature.(see video here)
