Advancing Worker Justice

ICCR's Advancing Worker Justice (AWJ) program brings shareholder advocates and allied worker-led and focused organizations together to advance dignity and justice for all working people. Investors seek to activate their investments, strategic partnerships, and movement-building strategies to influence workplace practices, build worker power, and achieve meaningful gains for workers’ rights in the U.S. and Canada. Worker rights are enshrined in the international human rights frameworks, including the UN Declaration on Human Rights and the ILO Conventions. 

Within AWJ, ICCR approaches this work for justice with an intersectional lens, centering the voices and experiences of frontline and essential workers, working people of color, workers with disabilities, migrant workers, women, and LGBTQIA+ workers. AWJ focuses on three thematic areas freedom of association, paid sick leave, and workplace health and safety.

Current Initiatives

Through a combination of dialogue and filing shareholder resolutions, ICCR's members are pressing companies to advance dignity and justice for all working people.
