    Trade Unions Law (2007).

    Adoption: 2007 | LAO-2007-L-85135

    The 2007 Trade Union Act defines membership of the trade union as workers from various sectors who have been "registered as members of trade unions in the Party┐s and State's organs, the Lao Front for National Construction, mass organisations and labour units".
    The Trade Union Law defines the status, rights and obligations, as well as the system, structure and financial management of trade unions at all levels in Laos thus failing to accord the right to determine their own structure, rules, administration or activities. Article 11 of the law recognises the right of the union to sign collective employment contracts but there is no compulsion on the part of the employer to bargain. Part IX of the law deals with the settlement of disputes. Article 44 defines the role of the union as promoting mediation and resolution rather than the defence and furtherance of the rights and entitlements of workers.
