Labour/Workers Rights

Since 1947 Pakistan is a member of the International Labour Organization (ILO). Pakistan has ratified 34 ILO’s Conventions including core conventions on Forced Labour Convention, 1930 (No. 29), Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organise Convention, 1948 (No. 87), Right to Organise and Collective Bargaining Convention, 1949 (No. 98), Equal Remuneration Convention, 1951 (No. 100), Abolition of Forced Labour Convention, 1957 (No. 105), Discrimination (Employment and Occupation) Convention, 1958 (No. 111), C138 – Minimum Age Convention, 1973 (No. 138) and Worst Forms of Child Labour Convention, 1999 (No. 182). But Pakistan hardly complied with the ILO’s core conventions as well as with fundamental rights provisions given in the Constitution of Pakistan.
