PSI Comments on ILO Report “Collective bargaining in the public service: a way forward”

23 May, 2013
Public Services International (PSI) welcomes the report and the excellent work done by the Committee of Experts, considering that this is the first time that collective bargaining in the public service is being addressed in a General Survey. Trade union rights remain the top priority for public sector unions around the world. This is certainly a timely report that exposes many of the challenges that trade unions face in the public sector.

At the 102nd International Labour Conference (ILC), the report “Collective bargaining in the public service: a way forward”, which has been prepared under articles 19, 22 and 35 of the ILO Constitution will be discussed. It is the first General Survey to be conducted on the Labour Relations (Public Service) Convention, 1978 (No. 151), the Collective Bargaining Convention, 1981 (No. 154), the Labour Relations (Public Service) Recommendation, 1978 (No. 159), and the Collective Bargaining Recommendation, 1981 (No. 163).
