Project budget £400,000
Between 2007-2010 the TUC supported the Sierra Leonean trade union movement to rebuild its union capacity in a post-civil war era. By 2007, trade union membership had dropped to 42,000 from a peak of some 150,000 in the pre-war period. The Sierra Leone Labour Congress (SLLC) and its affiliates had an uphill task in defending workers' rights and rebuilding the movement due to the lack of expertise and resources. The Rebuilding Trade Union Capacity in Sierra Leone Project, launched in 2007 with financial support from the Department for International Development, gave a tremendous boost to trade union institutions, structures, and networks. The successful project received endorsement from the Sierra Leonean government of the day.
