    Enterprise Formalization: Fact or Fiction? – New ILO/GIZ Study on what works to formalize enterprises

    02 June 2014

    Informality of enterprises seems to be a rational behaviour that can best be overcome by reducing the cost of formalization and by offering clear benefits like an extended coverage of social protection. This is one of the key findings of a new joint study of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) trying to summarize what works and what doesn’t work in formalizing the large informal enterprise sector in developing and emerging countries.

    Trade unions and worker cooperatives: Where are we at?

    01 April 2014

    Last May, ACTRAV and the ILO cooperative branch held a seminar on the topic of relations between trade unions and worker cooperatives. The goal was to re-examine the relationship between the two movements by taking stock of recent initiatives around the world. To be sure, the relationship between trade unions and cooperatives is as long as the history of trade unions. In fact, it is fair to say that the first associations of workers that emerged in Europe looked more like cooperatives than trade unions.
