(March 2012)

Statement by delegate of India regarding observance by the Government of Myanmar of the Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organize, Convention No. 87

 

Mr. Chairman,

 

 

1.       We welcome the efforts of the Government of Myanmar to undertake necessary  legislative reforms in connection with ILO Convention No. 87.  Government of India has noted the considerable progress made by Government of Myanmar with regard to the Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organize , through  the signing of the Labour Organisations Law  by the President of  Myanmar on 11 October 2011,thereby repealing the Trade Union Act of 1926.  With the approval by the Government of Myanmar of the Draft Rules for the Labour Organisations on 23 February 2012, the Labour Organisations Law entering into force  on 9 March 2012, will allow workers in Myanmar to form labour organizations in the country and will promote their  related  labour rights.  We also acknowledge the  useful technical assistance provided by ILO to the Government of  Myanmar in the drafting process relating to this new legislation.   

 

2.       In the light of these developments, India believes that the consideration for establishment of a Commission of Inquiry, based on a complaint concerning non observance by Myanmar of C87 may be reviewed, as proposed by Government of Myanmar.  We support the Government of Myanmar’s proposal.

 

Thank you, Mr. Chairman.
