सिलाई बुनाई तथा इम्ब्रोइडरी हेण्डिक्राफ्टमा आबद्ध मजदूरको पेशागत हकहित, अधिकार र सामाजिक सुरक्षाका लागि २०५३ सालमा उदित नारायण चौधरीको अध्यक्षतामा नेपाल इम्ब्रोइडरी हेण्डिक्राफ्ट तथा सिलाई बुनाई श्रमिक संघको स्थापना भएको हो । औपचारिक रूपमा २०५५ जेठ २ गते श्रम विभागमा दर्ता भएको संघले हेण्डिक्राफ्ट, इम्ब्रोइडरी, सिलाई एवं बुनाई क्षेत्रका श्रमिकहरूलाई समेटेको छ । यस क्षेत्रमा सलग्न मजदूरहरू यसअघि सामूहिक रूपमा संगठित हुन सकेका थिएनन् । संघको स्थापनाले यस क्षेत्रका मजदूरलाई एकाकार गर्ने र पेशागत मुद्दालाई उठान गर्न सहज भएको छ ।  

यस क्षेत्रका उद्योग र कारखानाको विस्तारसँगै मजदूर हकहितको सवाल पनि जटिल हुँदै आयो । प्रतिष्ठानले श्रमिकलाई लामो समय काम लगाउने तर रोजगारीको ग्यारेण्टी नगर्ने परिपाटीले गर्दा मजदूरले पेशागत सुनिश्चितताको सवाल उठाए । नियुक्ति पत्र, ठेकेदारी प्रथा अन्त्य, श्रम ऐन बमोजिम मजदूरलाई स्थायी नियुक्ति पत्र र सञ्चय कोषको व्यवस्था गर्नुपर्ने लगायत माग सम्बोधनका लागि संघ लड्दै आएको छ । सरकारले यस पेशामा आबद्ध मजदूरको पेशागत सुनिश्चितता गरेमा हजारौं नेपाली महिला तथा युवा विदेशिनु नपर्ने संघको ठहर छ । हेण्डीक्राफ्ट र सिलाई बुनाई पेशामा आबद्ध मजदूरलाई तालीम प्रदान गरी क्षमता वृद्धि गरिएमा निकासीजन्य थुप्रै सामग्री उत्पान गर्न सकिन्छ । नेपाल ट्रेड युनियन कांग्रेससँग आबद्ध यस संघले अन्तर्राष्ट्रिय स्तरमा इण्डष्ट्रीअल ग्लोबल युनियनको सदस्यता लिएको छ ।    

५० जिल्लामा विस्तारित यस संघमा हाल १३,५०५ सदस्य आबद्ध छन् । २०५३ साल यता संघले २०५९, ०६५, ०६९,२०८० मा अधिवेशन सम्पन्न गरेको छ । पछिल्लो पटक २०८०...................  गते सम्पन्न अधिवेशनले तेजप्रसाद रिजालको अध्यक्षमा निम्नानुसारको कार्य समिति चयन गरेको छ ।
