Job description: Summary:

Workers’ Empowerment and Participation (WEP) Activity is a four-year, $4 million labor rights activity implemented by Solidarity Center (SC).

The program objective is to strengthen the capacity of independent trade unions, trade union federations, and worker community associations in the RMG and SFP sectors to collectively advocate for their rights and interests, and to enhance constructive participation towards improving industrial relations between workers and management.

The objective of this mid-term performance evaluation is to review the progress made toward achieving intended results/outcomes, identify any lessons learned, and recommend possible programmatic adaptations at the half-way point of WEP’s implementation. The findings of the evaluation report will be used to improve SC’s implementation of WEP activity by making appropriate adjustments to the activity and to inform future labor sector programming.
