Monitoring and Data Analysis Specialist – Fair Work Monitor Coordinator consultancy based


CNV Internationaal Foundation is part of the National Confederation of Trade Unions CNV in the Netherlands. CNV Internationaal has worked with trade unions in low- and middle-income countries since its establishment in 1967. Our mission is to reach 100% Fair Labour, through the principles of international solidarity and social dialogue. CNV Internationaal works on strengthening the position of workers in both the formal and informal economy through strong social partners and promoting sustainability in the supply chain.

Living wage is key in finding solutions and addressing root causes to a number of core challenges in various supply chains. The absence of Freedom of Association and social dialogue limits one of the most important and innovative ways to gather and validate data, safeguarding sustainable change.

CNV Internationaal, together with its trade union partners created the participatory digital survey to improve labour conditions in different supply chains like sugarcane, palm oil, mining and textile. By applying the Harvard University-developed digital software KoboToolBox, we designed a labour survey (The Fair Work Monitor) on working conditions and social dialogue through an extensive network of unions. With this unique tool, our partner trade unions can monitor labour relations on the ground and allow for worker’s voices to be heard.


In Indonesia, the Fair Work Monitor will be applied in the palm oil sector in cooperation with one of our local partner unions. This might be extended later on to the mining sector. The collected data from workers aims to gain insight into the cost of living, existing wages and key working conditions within the palmoil sector. The gathered data is also cross checked with internationally accepted living wage benchmarks and methodologies and other labour data. The implementation will start in Q3 of 2024.
