    About the ILO in Romania

    Romania is a member state of the ILO from 1919 to 1942 and since 1956 up to present.

    The ILO has assisted Romania in its economic and labour market transformation and in its accession to the EU in 2007. Main areas of work included eliminating worst forms of child labour, strengthening social dialogue, collective bargaining and their institutions, labour law, labour dispute settlement, supporting pension reform and sustainable social security system.

    Since the onset of the global financial and economic crisis, the ILO has provided technical support in the process of country recovery by outlining decent work policy options and institutional capacity building in the area of amicable settlement of collective labour dispute. Different studies examined the impact of the crisis on income inequalities, wages, industrial relations, collective bargaining and role of social dialogue, pension reform.
