Funded by the German Federal Ministry for Development Cooperation (BMZ) and Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) the Project has implemented activities in Cambodia, Indonesia, and Pakistan, in addition to a range of regional and global activities.
In Indonesia, the project began its implementation in April 2015 with focus on promoting evidence-based minimum wage fixing and wage policy development, and interest-based collective bargaining. Achievements of the Project include wage policy monitoring tools using a balanced score card methodology, collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) in 12 pilot enterprises negotiated through an interest-based collective bargaining methods, policy papers on a more effective dispute settlement system and national wages system in Indonesia, and manual on effective collective bargaining. Having been in operation for more than three years in Indonesia, the project is completing implementation of its activities on 31 December 2018.
In this regard, the LSGSC project plans to conduct a workshop to mark closing of the project, showcase its achievements and contributions, and discuss follow up activities to be carried out by other ILO programmes and projects, as well as by the ILO’s constituents.
