Persatuan Sahabat Wanita Selangor (Friends of Women) (PSWS)

This women workers’ organisation gives empowerment and leadership trainings on labour organising to women workers so they can take up leadership positions in existing labour unions or organise new unions. The group trains employees in electronics, garment and agriculture companies, as well as home-based workers, domestic workers and contract cleaning workers. In cooperation with women’s rights and labour organisations in Malaysia, PSWS also advocates for improved national legislation and implementation of existing laws on issues such as minimum wage, sexual harassment in the workplace and migrant workers’ rights.
