In this section, we answer some of the most frequently asked questions about workers in China and provide the detailed background and statistical information readers from outside China need to better understand the key issues of labour relations, work safety, employment and wages, social security, employment discrimination, and migrant workers and their children. Each section is updated regularly to take into account new data and government policies.
Since 2003, China Labour Bulletin has produced an extensive series of research reports that provide an in-depth analysis of China's evolving labour movement and cover a wide-range of subjects including worker organizing and activism, trade union reform and collective bargaining, occupational illness, and the exploitation of child labour and workers overseas.
China Labour Bulletin is a non-governmental organization based in Hong Kong that supports and actively engages with the workers' movement in China. Our primary objective, within China, is to hold the official trade union accountable to its members, encourage workers to get involved, and thereby transform China's unions into genuinely representative institutions. We also aim to provide trade unionists outside the country with the most up-to-date and reliable information about worker activism and foster lasting international solidarity.
