ILO law on freedom of association: Standards and procedures

Part one contains texts of and extracts from ILO Conventions and ILO Recommendations dealing with freedom of association and labour relations. Part two contains extracts from the regulations governing the procedure of the ILO's supervisory bodies.

Although the notion of freedom of association is often associated with labour-management disputes, many advances in labour law in this century have been the result of the exercise of freedom of association and collective bargaining. This book presents relevant extracts on freedom of association and collective bargaining from the ILO Constitution and from international labour Conventions, Recommendations and other instruments. It also outlines the procedures which governments and employers' and workers' organizations may use when they feel that rights to freedom of association have been violated.
