COVID-19 in the Americas: Strengthening social dialogue, collective bargaining and mechanisms in labour relations
28 July 2020
The Covid-19 pandemic does not justify any restriction on the fundamental rights at work enshrined in international labour standards, and full respect for these rights is a precondition for effective social dialogue.
