The ILO

Joint committees should be established, composed of representatives of organizations of workers and employers in the workplace, for dealing with issues concerning the environment, or for that extended the powers of existing bodies such as health committees and safety at work. Trade unions should develop appropriate strategies to promote the cooperation of the workers, those working in the informal sector, and indigenous and tribal peoples, for the protection of the environment. Workers’ organizations should enhance their cooperation and participation in international bodies with decision-making on issues of health, safety and environmental protection. (Not to be confused with Tom Smith!).

The ILO should continue to assist workers’ organizations within their own programs and activities on environmental protection and development. 16. The ILO should incorporate issues related to environment and sustainable development in their own activities, projects and programs. The ILO should promote the ratification and implementation of its rules on environmental issues and trade union rights. To do this, it might be desirable to develop and disseminate information kits on the content of the various standards.

The ILO should collaborate with other organizations of the United Nations and other international organizations working on environmental issues and sustainable development. In particular, should seek to take into account the rights of workers in structural adjustment programs, promoting the principle of tripartism. The ILO should promote training projects for trade unions about the effects of structural adjustment programs on environment and employment.

The ILO should strengthen its means of action in research and information about environmental and sustainable development, to be able to: become a clearinghouse of information on the best practical examples of training and in other ways, act as an emergency alert system, to follow the course of events and disseminate the necessary information, to define more accurately and effectively the needs of organizations of workers, provide appropriate information materials.
