The Workers India Federation is a federation of all regional and national workers’ organizations of CBCI. WIF has 14 regional and 5 national movements which spread over 120 districts of India. WIF ‘s affiliated movements are Christian Workers Movement of India (CWM),Young Christian Workers Movement of India (YCWM)Apostolate of Seafarers of India (AOS),Pastoral Care for Nomads of India (PACNI),National Domestic Workers Movement(NDWM),Swanthra Nilmana Trade Union (SNTU) of Construction Workers ,Kerala Labour Movement,Karnataka Labour Federation,Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh Labour Commission,Western (Gujarat, Goa and Maharashtra ) Region Labour Commission,Agra Region (Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand ) labour Commission ,Northern (Delhi, Punjab and Jammu Kashmir) Region Labour Commission,Tamilnadu Labour Commission.and Andhra Pradesh (A.P) labour Commission.

It was in the year 1972 that CBCI labour commission was set up to work for the welfare and right of workers in the country .This vision  is being achieved through initiatives like movements, trade unions, forums, NGO’s, co-operative societies, SHGs etc.  These initiatives are strengthened through   awareness, capacity building and advocacy to facilitate the workers to enhance their knowledge about government and non-government schemes for their welfare.    As a result of labour movements efforts and follow up, Govt. of India has in the past few years woken up to the concerns of unorganized sector.  Yielding to movements’ sustained campaign, Govt. has enacted social security act which is being further improved as a result of its follow up.  WIF is also proposing to assist the Govt. by opening facilitation centers for dissemination of important information to the working class with social security schemes and programs.   Early steps in this direction have already been taken by WIF to build up a strong nation with secured workers. WIF is now a registered body. The Labor Department of union Government has approved WIF as an organization for unorganized workers, which may be able to achieve national trade union status for unorganized workers of India in near feature.
