Persatuan Sahabat Wanita (Friends of Women Organisation) is a women workers’ support group began in 1984. We first started working with plantation workers, electronic workers and domestic workers from way back then. Most were women and we worked on health and safety issues with these workers. These workers were not allowed to unionise. We have worked in the informal sector, domestic workers (maids) who do not come under the Employment Act and thus do not get benefits like EPF (Employee Provident Fund) – retirement benefits. Some of the domestic workers, after learning from our training on the benefits of EPF were able to persuade their employers to provide them EPF. We provide training, have case solutions that is assist workers in SOCSO (Social Security Fund – in cases of injury at work). Our thrust of our work is organising workers – working with women workers on worker rights, advocacy and training. We network with a number of organisations like women’s groups, human rights and unions.
