The second strategic meeting on the Global Housekeeping Campaign, held 11-12 September in Langkawi, Malaysia, brought together 62 participants from 15 federations and national level unions from 13 countries to continue building the initiative.

Every participating union recognized that the series of educational meetings, actions and rallies have brought gains in, for example regularizing casual housekeepers in Pakistan and the Philippines. Two local chapters affiliated to NUWHRAIN in the Philippines succeeded in eliminating room quotas. The union has also negotiated an end to the notorious 'no trolley policy' which inflicts permanent damage on housekeepers but it has not yet been implemented.

Participants evaluated the current stage of the campaign and identified priorities to carry it forward: education and putting concrete demands to management to make their workplaces safe. Model clauses based on this meeting will be prepared for the initiative and educational seminars organized to advance the initiative.
