Training guide for Freedom of association and collective bargaining

Training guide for freedom of association trainers in the Philippines

The training guide was produced for use by officials of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) in training user trainees in international labour standards (ILS), and in particular standards and principles on freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining.

The guide aims to add value to a very large body of existing jurisprudence and reference materials on ILS, and in particular rights and principles concerning freedom of association and collective bargaining by presenting content concisely, in a Philippine context, giving onward citation to relevant reference materials. The guide does not attempt to answer all questions about ILS, FoA and CB rights and principles. It does aim to give its trainer users the guidance needed to find answers and to craft training in a manner appropriate to final user trainees.
