Migrant Workers North West

 

migrant-workers-north-westMigrant Workers North West has been established as a Limited Company, with charitable objects, to collate and promote "best practice" in the employment of migrant workers and the provision of support to migrant worker communities.

It has already attracted a huge amount of support from organisations which now constitute MWNW's Advisory Committee, and include the North West TUC; MPs and Members of the European Parliament; One North West; ACAS; City College Manchester; First Bus; Arriva; Manchester Refugee Support Network; the Co-operative Group; Logistics College North West; Oxfam; Sustainability North West; the Manufacturing Institute; the Employment Relations Forums; Jobcentre Plus; and many others.

Migrant Workers North West acts as a co-ordinating body for all organisations and agencies providing services which support migrant workers, their employers and their communities. Full details of those services are published in the MWNW website at www.migrantworkersnorthwest.org.  

In addition, the organisation helps to develop best practice in the employment of migrant workers through the promotion of a Minimum Standards Charter, endorsed by both the North West TUC and Business in the Community. MWNW then also uses this best practice model to promote employment opportunities for indigenous workless groups within the Region, ensuring that a "holistic" approach is taken to filling labour and skills shortages across the North West. Our Project Workers will engage positively with employers wanting to apply such best practice, signposting them towards the various agencies who can assist them.

MWNW will particularly promote the need for a detailed skills strategy in relation to migrant workers and promotes the positive benefits of migrant workers to the North West economy within workplaces and communities.
