Film screenings highlight the issue of working conditions for temporary and migrant workers


Two Heathy Workplaces Film Award screenings are being organised in Austria and Romania in September, both of which focus on key occupational safety and health (OSH) issues for seasonal, temporary and migrant workers. These groups are considered as vulnerable workers as they are often subjected to a higher level of workplace risk than other demographics.

The Austrian Federal Ministry of Labour is organising a screening of the film Rules of Assembly Line, At High Speed on 14 September at the Village Cinema Wien Mitte. The film focuses on a slaughterhouse in Germany, where a number of migrant workers are employed. It highlights the parallel experiences of the workers, who are subjected to poor working conditions, and a group of German activists who are standing up for the workers’ OSH rights. The screening is followed by a discussion on the lessons of the film. For more information, please contact Martina Häckel-Bucher.

The second event, organised by the Institutul Naţional de Cercetare - Dezvoltare pentru Protecţia Muncii ''Alexandru Darabont'' in Romania, is an online screening of the film Marina on 17 September. The film follows a 42-year-old Romanian migrant working in the German healthcare sector and highlights the demanding working conditions faced by many migrant workers as they adapt to unfamiliar cultures.The screening is followed by a debate on the main issues raised by the film, including an overview of the campaign Right for All Seasons of the European Labour Authority.
