2012

  1. Myanmar - Promoting Rights at Work in Myanmar

    21 September 2012

    Donor – US Department of State The recently initiated political reform process in Myanmar has opened a window of opportunity for the international community to support the country’s peaceful transition towards democracy after years of military rule and international sanctions. Since 1999, Myanmar has not received technical cooperation from the ILO except for the purpose of combating forced labour. In its 101st session in 2012, the International Labour Conference decided to lift the restrictions and requested that urgent attention be given to technical cooperation priorities such as the effective and full realization of the right to freedom of association, as well as the elimination of forced labour. Today, it is of vital importance to support national constituents in their efforts to make freedom of association a reality – in law and in practice.

2011

  1. Promoting pay equity in Jordan

    07 October 2011

    In Jordan, statistics show that the average monthly wage for women is 314 Jordan dinars (US$443), compared to 364 Jordan dinars (US$514) for men. Also significant is the fact that almost half of employed women in Jordan are professionals who earn 33 per cent less than their male counterparts. Since March 2010, the ILO has been working in Jordan in close collaboration with the Ministry of Labour (MoL) and the Jordanian National Commission for Women (JNCW) to build a knowledge base on pay discrimination that enables decision makers to formulate evidence-based policies to promote pay equity. The ultimate goal of this project is to contribute to the the country’s development goal of increasing women’s participation in the labour market. The creation and launch of a tripartite plus National Steering Committee for Pay Equity (NSCPE) in July 2011 has been one of the most important achievements of the project. NSCPE’s mandate is to promote cooperation among its members in implementing a National Action Plan on Pay Equity and to coordinate activities aimed at achieving equal pay for work of equal value. The NSCPE is fully operational and has created two subcommittees: a legal subcommittee, which focuses on enhancing policies and legislation for equal pay and making recommendations regarding legislative amendments; and a research subcommittee, which focuses on conducting in-depth research on pay-based discrimination in the private education sector to inform policy and programmes. In the framework of this project, the ILO has provided technical support for pro-pay equity provisions in the National Employment Strategy and the National Women’s strategy for 2011 – 2015. It has also provided training to members of the NSCPE to improve their understanding of the principle of equal pay for work of equal value and gender-neutral job evaluations methods.

  2. Promoting gender equality and non-discrimination in Azerbaijan

    07 October 2011

    During 2011, the ILO undertook work in Azerbaijan as a follow up to two in-depth ILO studies on discrimination and gender which were commissioned in 2009-2010. The findings of these two studies confirmed the need for continued legislative reform, especially to prevent discrimination based on sex in Azerbaijan. The studies pointed to a need for awareness on the part of workers and employers on relevant legal norms. In May 2011, constituents validated these studies and agreed on the way forward to implement the recommendations emanating from them that will ultimately lead to establish new or modify laws, policies, action plans and/or programmes to be adopted and brought into line with international standards on non-discrimination, as well as implement an awareness raising strategy on non-discrimination. Two crucial activities have been undertaken to date: 1) an in-depth review of the labour code, and 2) translation into Azeri of the equal pay guide on gender neutral job evaluations.
