Bahrain work standards win ILO praise
Manama, April 29, 2011
Bahrain won praise from the International Labour Organisation (ILO) for its commitment to international labour covenants and efforts to bring unemployment under control besides achieving decent work standards.
This came as Labour Minister Jameel Humaidan received International Labour Organisation (ILO) standards and fundamental principles and rights at work sector executive director Guy Ryder and regional director Nada Al Nashif.
Ryder also hailed government-led efforts to bring unemployment under control, achieve decent work standards, and adopt laws on insurance against unemployment, trade unions as well as the legislation allowing workers to swap employers.
He expressed confidence in the authorities' ability to address the repercussions of the recent unrest and contain potential damage which may affect individuals and society.
Ryder stressed the importance of observing legal procedures when laying off workers for Bahrain to preserve achievements under His Majesty's reform project.
He thanked the government for allowing the ILO delegation to address all issues in relation to the unrest. The meeting discussed results of talks with senior officials, businessmen, companies, workers and trade unions.-TradeArabia News Service
