PETITION by the Federation of Domestic Workers in Peru (FENTTRAHOP)
To Manuel Arturo Merino de Lama, President of the Congress of the Republic of Peru
Domestic workers in Peru suffer from exploitation and discrimination, they are often exposed to harassment and violence. Most are informally employed, which means that they work without a contract, without healthcare, with incomes below the minimum wage, and with reduced rights.
Faced with this situation in 2018, the Congress of the Republic unanimously ratified Convention No. 189 of the International Labor Organization (ILO), “Decent Work Convention for Domestic Workers”. But to date this has not been implemented with a new law.
That is why, given precariousness and lack of protection, the COVID crisis has aggravated the vulnerable situation of domestic workers. About 70% of workers have been fired without any compensation; those who work have reduced salaries, longer hours with more jobs to do. And in the absence of a safety at work protocol, workers have been infected and others who are being held for months, without rest; in addition, employment agencies promote this exploitation by offering domestic workers who do not go out “during the pandemic.”
The National Federation of Domestic Workers of Peru (FENTTRAHOP) together with various social organizations and the public are organizing under the slogan #LeydeTrabajadorasDelHogar #SeraLey to raise awareness and demand the approval of this just and long-awaited Law.
Therefore, the signatories ask you, Mr. President of Congress, and through you the 130 congresspeople, not to delay the debate and approval of this Law any longer. We require a vote in favor from each one of you. The domestic workers law (#LeydeTrabajadorasDelHogar) will be a historic step on the road to achieving the full and just rights that the nearly half a million domestic workers in our country urgently need to have.
FOR WORK AND A LIFE OF DIGNITY FOR DOMESTIC WORKERS!
THE DOMESTIC WORKERS LAW WILL BE LAW!31 August 2020
