References made to the MNE Declaration in International Framework Agreements

The MNE Declaration – as an instrument that stimulates dialogue among all parties – is referenced in International Framework Agreements (IFAs) negotiated and signed between MNEs and global union federations (GUFs). The majority of IFAs make reference to ILO Conventions, and an increasing number are also referring to the MNE Declaration (see below). Among the current IFAs available online, 31 directly refer to the ILO MNE Declaration.
