The RBSA-funded intervention promotes social dialogue to improve Philippines’ compliance with national and international standards, including COVID-19 responses, in selected economic zones and is part of an integrated strategy that feeds into policy and legal reforms.
To achieve this, tripartite constituents are supported to improve workplace cooperation, workplace and area-level compliance strategies and COVID-19 protocols and to establish monitoring mechanisms and dispute resolution mechanisms.
Maximizing the use of digital technologies, the expected results of the action are several. Firstly, tripartite social dialogue mechanisms are improved at ecozone level.
Secondly, the institutional framework for dispute resolution improved and an integrated case management established. Thirdly, the Employers Confederation of the Philippines provides services on workplace compliance and sustainable business practices in the ecozones and workers’ organisations offer stronger support for monitoring workers’ rights in the workplace, including on observance of OSH and COVID-19 protocols.
For policy and legislative reforms, the project aims to strengthen constituents’ engagement to address COVID-19 responses and comments of the ILO’s supervisory bodies on the application of the Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organise Convention (C87) and the Right to Organise and Collective Bargaining Convention, (C98).
The project will support review of policies and practices in line with technical Conventions - ILO Convention 155 and its Protoccol (including its COVID-19 context) and Labour Statistics Convention, 1985 (No. 160).
The Project Assistant will be based in Manila Office and report to and work under the supervision of the Project Manager.
Guidance will also be provided by the CO-Manila administrative and finance unit to ensure compliance with ILO policies, rules and procedures.
