US President’s Committee on the ILO

The President’s Committee was convened on May 4, 2010 by US Department of Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. On the basis of its discussion, the committee agreed to:

Call upon The Tripartite Advisory Panel on International Labor Standards (TAPILS) to resume its work of reviewing the legal feasibility of ratification of selected ILO conventions.
Work toward the successful completion of the ratification process for ILO Convention No. 111 on employment discrimination (one of the ILO’s eight fundamental conventions), which was submitted to the Senate in 1998.
Request that TAPILS submit to the committee a short list of other conventions that appear to be suitable for legal review and possible US ratification in the near term.
