It reaffirms the Group`s commitment to respect for fundamental social rights and adopts the Ilo Convention on Combating Violence and Harassment in the Workplace adopted this year. ILO Online: How is the implementation of the agreement monitored? ILO Online: How many companies have signed such agreements to date? Dominique Michel: They do not replace direct negotiations between companies and employees, at national or company level, they only offer a framework for these negotiations so that these negotiations can take place constructively and with a minimum limit. Dominique Michel: As a recent development in the field of industrial relations, international framework agreements are an interesting topic for the ILO. The ILO Director-General witnessed the signing of some of them, such as Chiquita. Several ILO departments (the Social Dialogue Sector, the Institute for Labour Studies, the Employers` and Workers` Activity Offices and the Programme for Multinational Enterprises) monitor and analyse these developments. The ILO Tripartite Declaration on Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy is a useful point of reference for enterprises considering the content of these agreements. This declaration contains recommendations on the desirable behaviour of enterprises with regard to employment, equal opportunities and treatment, qualifications, working conditions, health and safety at work and employment relations. “New propulsion systems and digitalisation are dramatically changing the world of work and we need to prepare socially for this change. This agreement allows our unions around the world to manage these changes in a negotiated manner. In particular, it provides for the development of the necessary skills for each employee and thus ensures that today`s workers are still employed tomorrow. ยป ILO Online: How far do these agreements go? Can they set wages and working conditions around the world? Dominique Michel: An international (or global) framework agreement (IFA) is an instrument negotiated between a multinational and a World Federation of the Union (GUF) to establish a lasting relationship between the parties and ensure that the company meets the same standards in all the countries where it operates. Sectoral unions in the multinational`s home country are also participating in negotiations on the agreement.
