Fatou Diouf, SATSE, Senegal

In this interview, Fatou Diouf, Public Utilities Syndicat Autonome des Travailleurs de la Sénégalaise des Eaux (SATSE), talks about gender equality and young workers.

In Senegal, as in the rest of Africa, young people are not joining unions for the following reasons: rising unemployment, late age of entry into working life and lack of intergenerational trust. Fatou Diouf talks about tax justice and the importance of raising awareness on this topic. She mentions the importance of advocacy for the ratification of certain fundamental Conventions for women such as ILO Convention 183 on the protection of motherhood.
