Rogério Marinho affirms that labor modernization is in accordance with international treaties

After arguments of the Brazilian delegation, the ILO found no violations of Convention 98 on trade union organization

Sanctions in 2017, labor modernization ( Law 13467 ) is in accordance with international treaties and obligations, said the Special Secretary of Social Security and Labor of the Ministry of Economy, Rogério Marinho, on Wednesday. Document issued by the International Labor Organization's Committee on the Application of Standards does not point to any illegality in Brazilian legislation.

"Brazil has demonstrated full conformity of labor modernization with international obligations. The conclusion of the ILO did not indicate a breach and nothing that would cast doubt on the practices of our country, "said Marinho, after the document was released at the 108th International Labor Conference, which will take place between the 10th and 21st of this month in Geneva, Switzerland ).

The clarification is due to the existence of a request previously made for the Brazilian government to verify whether the labor reform violated ILO Convention 98, of which Brazil is a signatory. The Convention concerns the application of the principles of the right of organization and collective bargaining.

Reform

The document of the ILO commission suggests the continuity of talks between government and representative entities on labor modernization. According to the Special Secretariat for Social Security and Labor, "the Brazilian government has taken note of the conclusions and will examine its proper implementation, in accordance with the interests of Brazil."

In the evaluation of the Secretariat, Brazil advocates making the ILO's procedures and practices "duly transparent, objective, impartial and tripartite, with due attention to the positions of governments".
