Yes , No and Unknown
Is freedom of association and collective bargaining mentioned in their code of conduct and does it approach the level of the ILO standards 87/98?
Definition of Freedom of Association
- That workers can associate, and demand respect of their rights and the defence of their interests, without fear of having actions taken against them by the companies.
- It also means that their collective actions won‟t be blocked by the government, companies or other unions that don‟t represent them.
- Freedom of association also means that workers can decide if they join (or not) specific groups or unions, and that their choice won‟t be a reason for sacking them or a requirement for being hired.
