International Labour Standards. A Workers' Education Manual.
International Labour Office, Geneva (Switzerland).
Concerned with the standard-setting work of the International Labor Organization (ILO), this manual is chiefly intended to provide guidance for worker's education instructors and trade union officials. It contains nine chapters: (1) the ILO origins and history are traced and the structure is explained; (2 & 3) procedures for the origination and adoption of international labor standards in the form of conventions and recommendations are described; (4) purposes and contents of international labor standards that have been adopted are delineated; (5 & 6) procedures, supervisory or promotional, developed to ensure effective and widespread application of those standards are analyzed; (7) special complaints procedures that exist to deal with alleged violations of ILO conventions are outlined; (8) the special procedures that exist as regards freedom of association and trade union rights are reviewed, and (9) the practical effect that conventions and recommendations have had over the years among the member states of the ILO is documented. A classified guide to international labor standards and a select bibliography are also included. (Other worker education manuals available through ILO are listed. One of them, Accident Prevention (ED 069 906) is available through ERIC.) (CSS)
