Trade Unions doing SALT - 're-familiarizing' with the community

My colleagues Anweshaa Ghosh, Rituu B Nanda and I from the Institute of Social Studies Trust (ISST) conducted a training of leaders of 10 Domestic Workers' Trade Unions from Delhi and Maharashtra on SALT and community life competence process in April 2016. Some of the participants of the workshop tried using SALT with domestic workers and shared the positive results of the exercise. Given below are some of the photos and comments shared by them over Whatsapp .

Anita Yadav, Society for Labour and Development, Gurgaon, 25th April 2016 

We usually go to the domestic worker community with our own agenda and don't care if they understand. SALT helped us to go deeper in conversation with the community. Attached SALT report in Hindi

Chinmayee Samal from Nirmala Sundharam Memorial-Apna Nirman Mazdoor, Delhi, 10th May 2016 " I did SALT visit with leaders of domestic workers.  Earlier we used to go to the community and give them lecture on their rights, trade union. They understood but did not take action or show interest. Now through SALT we tried to find their strengths and what they wanted as domestic workers. They liked the session as they had got time to talk about themselves.It was initially difficult to ask them about their achievements but then they shared their stories. "

Laxmi Naik, Nirmaan Majdoor Sanghatan, Maharashtra, 26th May 2016 "We did a SALT process in one of our community indira nagar on issue housing rights. it was helpful but we also faced little difficulty."

Niyazmin, National Domestic Workers Movement, Delhi, 7th June 2016

We did SALT activity with the group and its very effective. It is my job to meet the domestic worker community. When I invite them for a meeting very few come and leave in a short time. This time I decided to use SALT in Ranga pahari community and where we tried to identify their strengths. They were very happy to share their stories and wanted to continue the meeting as they said someone was listening to them for the first time. I try to leave at 5 pm as its hard to get a bus for home but they insisted that we continue the meeting beyond 5 pm. I will do SALT again. We would like to train our domestic workers leaders in SALT.

We did SALT process in Khandal on 17th June with some of organisation leaders. The impact was very good. Some people told what they like or feel and some experienced through drawing

Mes collègues Anweshaa Ghosh, Rituu B Nanda et moi-même, de l’Institute of Social Studies Trust (ISST) avons mené une formation des dirigeants de 10 syndicats des travailleurs domestiques de Delhi et Maharashtra sur SALT et le processus de la compétence communautaire pour la vie en avril 2016. Une partie des participants de l'atelier ont essayé d'utiliser le SALT avec les travailleurs domestiques et ont partagé les résultats positifs de l'exercice. Voir ci-dessous quelques-unes photos et commentaires partagés par eux sur WhatsApp.

 

Extrait des témoignages:

 

Nous allons habituellement à la rencontre des travailleurs domestiques avec notre propre ordre du jour et nous ne nous soucions pas de savoir si elles comprennent. SALT nous a permis d'aller plus loin dans la conversation avec la communauté.

Anita Yadav, Société pour le travail et le développement, Gurgaon, le 25 Avril 2016

 

Il a d'abord été difficile de les interroger sur leurs réalisations, mais ils ont partagé leurs histoires.

Nous avons entamé un processus SALT dans l'une de nos communauté indira nagar sur les droits en matière de logement. C’était utile, mais nous avons aussi fait face à des difficultés.

Laxmi Naik, Nirmaan Majdoor Sanghatan, Maharashtra, 26 mai 2016

 

C’est mon travail de rencontrer la communauté des travailleurs domestiques. Quand je les invite pour une rencontre très peu y répondent ou quittent très rapidement la réunion. Cette fois, j’ai décidé d'utiliser SALT dans la communauté Ranga pahari. Nous avons essayé d'identifier leurs points forts. Elles étaient très heureuses de partager leurs histoires et voulaient continuer la réunion car, disaient-elles, quelqu'un les écoutait pour la première fois. J'ai essayé de partir à 17 heures, heure après laquelle il est difficile de prendre un bus pour renter chez moi, mais elles ont insisté que nous continuons la réunion au-delà de 17 heures. Je ferai à nouveau SALT. Nous aimerions former nos dirigeants des travailleurs domestiques à SALT.

Niyazmin, Mouvement national des travailleurs domestiques, Delhi, le 7 Juin 2016

 

Nous avons procédé à SALT à Khandal le 17 juin avec certains dirigeants de l'organisation. L'impact a été très bon. Certaines personnes ont exprimé ce qu'elles aiment ou ressentent et certaines ont recouru au dessin.

Laxmi Naik, Nirmaan Majdoor Sanghatan, Maharashtra, le 17 Juin 2016
