An ILO Commission of Inquiry on Freedom of Association in Burma
This report from The International Trade Union Confederation examines the denial of freedom of association in Burma and calls on the International Labour Organisation (ILO) to approve the establishment of a Commission of Inquiry on Freedom of Association in Burma.
Freedom of association has long been denied in law and practice in Burma, despite several years of strong criticism by the ILO. A Commission of Inquiry could identify the additional next steps necessary to bring Burma’s constitution and labour laws into compliance with international labour standards independent of any present legislative initiative by the government. Further, it could be a catalyst for changes in practice, from the release of trade union prisoners to the creation of space for legitimate trade unions to operate more freely in Burma.
