Opis projektuSIPTU’s Migrant workers Network will the used and referred to throughout the project. Migrant workers represent 15% of SIPTU’s total membership equating to 23,000 members. SIPTU established the Migrant Workers Network in 2015 to provide a focus on migrant needs. Promoting the integration of Immigrants provides the opportunity to address these needs through: 1. Further development and strengthening of the SIPTU Migrant Network, helping to promote national/ international best practice 2. Enhancing proficiency of English amongst our migrant members. 3. Training and upskilling to enhance the skills profile of migrant workers. 4. Advice and integration services Each of the above programmes will be delivered through SIP-TU’s extensive network of local offices. AIMS The followiing are the aims of Promoting the integration of migrant in the workplace • By promoting the inclusion and integration of migrant so that they play a more positive and active role in Irish society. Through the further expansion and development of the SIPTU Migrant Network we will provide greater outreach and support to migrant members and their families. SIPTU recognise the challenges facing migrant workers and their families and the Network will provide a forum for shared experiences and development of bespoke, tailored services for migrant members. • By enhancing the language skills of our migrant mem-bers we believe they will be better equipped to play a full, participatory role in their local community. Enhanced language skills will facilitate greater mobility for workers primarily work-ing in low wage, low skilled sectors. • By upskilling the skills of our migrant members thereby enhancing their employability and portability. Analysis of our migrant member’s occupations and skillset highlight that they primarily work in the Manufacturing and Service sectors, in low skilled, low paid jobs. Training provided will help migrant workers to upskill and progress within the Irish labour market.
