Abstract/Citation: This Executive Order provides that all government employees can form, join or assist employees' organisations of their own choosing for the furtherance and protection of their interests (s. 2). This applies as well to labour-management committees, works councils and other such participation schemes. The Order contains protections of the right to organise (ss. 5-6), governs the registration of employees' organisations (ss. 7-8) and addresses appropriate organisational units (ss. 9-12). It further refers to negotiations (s. 13), strikes (s. 14) and the settlement of disputes (s. 16). The Order also establishes the Public Sector Labor-Management Council (s. 15).
