Media alert: Freedom of association, the most serious cases in the latest ILO Report

The ILS Department has just published the 357th Report of the Committee on Freedom of association. The most serious and urgent cases examined are those of Iran, Ethiopia, Peru and Congo. And urgent appeals relate to Korea, Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Peru, Congo, Portugal, Colombia, Mexico and Iraq.

The Committee met at the International Labour Office, in Geneva, on 27, 28 May and 4 June 2010 and examined 39 cases on the merits, reaching definitive conclusions in 29 cases and interim conclusions in 10 cases. Regarding the complaints, the three countries interested are Belarus, the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, and Mexico. And some cases now deserve the attention of the Committee of Experts on the Application of Conventions and Recommendations: Australia, Canada, Ethiopia, Japan and Peru.

Labour journalists should have a look at the report and search for their country’s cases. It’s worth a good story on freedom of association.
