Review of Public Communication CAN 2016-1: Em8-26/2017E-PDF

report issued pursuant to the Canada-Colombia Agreement on Labour Cooperation.

"This report responds to Public Communication CAN 2016-1 (Colombia) submitted to the Canadian National Administrative Office (NAO) by the Canadian Labour Congress and five Colombian labour organizations pursuant to Article 10 and Annex 2 of the Canada-Colombia Agreement on Labour Cooperation (CCOALC). The Canadian NAO accepted Public Communication CAN 2016-1 for review on July 15, 2016 after it was determined that it met all the requirements established in Canada's Guidelines for Public Communications. In accordance with the Guidelines, the Canadian NAO conducted a review and has prepared this public report within 180 days of the acceptance of the Public Communication. The Public Communication alleges that the Government of Colombia has failed to comply with its obligations under the CCOALC by failing to provide adequate protection for internationally recognized labour principles and rights. More specifically, the Public Communication identifies failures in the areas of (a) freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining including protection of the right to organize and strike; (b) enforcement of labour laws; (c) derogation from labour laws in order to encourage trade and foreign investment; and (d) timely access to labour justice"--Executive summary, p. ii.
