The ILO is currently holding its 100th International Labour Conference in Geneva. Among the issues that are under debate includes setting up of minimum standards for domestic workers. Even since its inception in 1919, the ILO had adopted a large number of Convention eight of which are considered as Core Labour Conventions [CLC]. The CLC, as per 1998 Declaration of Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work , are to be respected by all member nations, irrespective of whether the same had been ratified or not. India has ratified four of the eight CLC and had recently re-stated its inability to ratify Convention 87 and 98.
It is in this background that the Indian Industrial Relations Association [IIRA] is proposing to hold a Consultation of Freedom of Association & Right to Collective Bargaining on June 29, 2011 in Conference Hall 1 of the India International Centre, New Delhi. The primary objective of the Consultation is to examine the India’s position with regards to ratification of CLCs in the background of legal and social structure prevailing in India.
The Consultation would have two panel discussions, one would have legalistic view on the ratification of Convention 87 and 98 while the other will examine the same from historical / sociological perspectives.
IIRA, therefore, request you to join the Consultation and present you organizational as also individual views on the subject.
