    Diagnostic Process on Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining in the Rural, Export Processing and Domestic Work Sectors

    03 December 2014

    The ILO, with generous funding from the Government of Sweden, has developed a diagnostic process to support the tripartite constituents in the promotion of freedom of association and collective bargaining rights. This process was designed to be adapted to different national contexts and can be used in three sectors: the rural, export processing and domestic work sectors. The full involvement of the tripartite partners is integral to the process, and allows for the comprehensive development of a forward-looking understanding of the practices, perceptions and awareness of freedom of association and collective bargaining in national contexts. On this rigorous basis, the constituents are supported in identifying, and implementing, their own priorities to realize full freedom of association and collective bargaining rights in their country. The ILO has already successfully applied the diagnostic process in Bangladesh, Brazil, Indonesia, Jordan, Kenya, Malawi, the Philippines and South Africa. More detailed information on the process can be obtained from the attached documents or FPRW@ilo.org

    Social Justice and Growth: The Role of the Minimum Wage

    18 June 2012

    This issue of the International Journal of Labour Research is wholly dedicated to the question of the minimum wage, a matter that has gained in importance and profile in recent years.
