The Arab Federation of Trade Unions Secretariat has established this site to contribute to supporting the basic rights of workers, especially migrant workers.
In view of the fragile situation of women and youth in the workplace in the Arab region, issues relating to the protection of women and youth from all forms of discrimination and exclusion, took up much space in the contents of this site. An electronic map has been devoted to monitoring the various violations committed against workers.
In order to strengthen the trade unionist capacities, particularly among youth and women, the Executive Secretariat has focused on an e-training program.
The website provides its followers with reference documents on sustainable development issues from trade unionist point of view.

The Arab Trade Union Confederation seeks through the "e-learning" section of the website to create a simplified lesson on the rights of workers stipulated in the international labor agreements.
The e-learning section contains 3 parts:
The first part is for the videos. It is composed of a set of videos, which aim to simplify the concepts related to "labor" and the rights of the workers and convey them in an understandable simple way.
Mufid's character plays an important role in explaining “these concepts” in a way that would make it clear and easy to grasp their meanings for the readers, regardless of their cultural level. Thus, anyone would be able to understand his or her rights guaranteed by the international conventions and agreements and they will be able to defend them in reality.
The second part is “Infographic”. It aims also to simplify the concepts of workers' rights and the economic and social challenges through the "image" technique, in addition to presenting a set of ratios and statistics.
The third part is an integrated e-learning system. This system will be available for the youth unionists (beginners) to take advantage of a number of training courses, which are provided by a number of trainers through video courses.
The system divided into three levels, in which the trainee advances from level 1 to 2, and 3. Then, graduates will receive certificates in trade union training,
which will enable them to develop their abilities and which will push them to keep up with the e-learning system.
