Significant number of workforce is involved in home-based work. Domestic workers, metal craftsmen, Thanka artists, idol makers form a huge part of workforce in Nepal and are vulnerable to labour exploitation.
GEFONT led a campaign to organise the home based workers who were not included in any labour legislation and formed Nepal home based workers union, Nepal Independent Domestic workers union, Nepal Thanka Artists Union and Nepal Gold and Silver works Trade Union.
Realising the importance of united front for significant impact, these four unions were merged to form one union – Home Workers’ Trade Union of Nepal (HUN). It is only affiliates of International Domestic Workers Federation (IDWF) in Nepal.
