Launched on 1 March, the Nightworker Charter highlights the need to recognise the contribution of all nightworkers in our societies. It will seek to put nighttime workers on equal footing with their daytime counterparts. 

La Charte des Travailleurs/ses de Nuit  affirme le besoin de reconnaître la contribution des travailleuses et travailleuses de nuit dont de nombreuses personnes migrantes, à nos sociétés. Elle demande que toutes les travailleurs et travailleuses, de jour comme de nuit, soient sur un pied d’égalité. 

Carta lucrătorilor de noapte  subliniază necesitatea de a recunoaște contribuția lucrătorilor de noapte în societățile noastre – mulți dintre aceștia fiind migranți, și, astfel, punerea lucrătorilor pe timp de noapte pe picior de egalitate cu omologii lor de zi. 

This interview in Romanian was taken by Venera Dimulescu at Scena9 and it is entitled "They work when the body asks to rest." (tr. from Romanian: „Ei muncesc atunci când corpul cere odihnă.”). Thank you for linking the Nightworker Charter to Scena9 readers, some who have become signatories.
