Decision on the 12th item on the agenda: Complaint concerning the non-observance by the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela of the Minimum Wage-Fixing Machinery Convention, 1928 (No. 26), the Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organise Convention, 1948 (No. 87), and the Tripartite Consultation (International Labour Standards) Convention, 1976 (No. 144), submitted under article 26 of the ILO Constitution by several delegates to the 104th Session (2015) of the International Labour Conference
The Governing Body noted with interest the information provided by the ILO Director-General regarding the commitment of the Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to include FEDECAMARAS in the future socio-economic dialogue table. The Governing Body expressed the firm expectation that before the 329th Session (March 2017) the Government would take appropriate measures to foster an appropriate environment for social dialogue, which would allow FEDECAMARAS and their member organizations, leaders and affiliated companies, as well as trade unions, to develop their legitimate activities in accordance with the decisions of the supervisory bodies of the ILO regarding Conventions Nos 87, 144 and 26.
The Governing Body requested the Office to effectively follow up in the adequate implementation of this decision. The Governing Body decided to further defer the decision of setting up a Commission of Inquiry to its 329th Session (March 2017) in light of the information referred to above.
