Bangladesh made ILO deputy member

  • Published at 04:55 pm June 3rd, 2014

Bangladesh has been elected a deputy member of the governing body of the International Labour Organization (ILO).

Bangladesh received 234 votes in the elections and has been elected for the period of 2014-2017 after a gap of three years, said a press release of Foreign Ministry.

The voting took place during the ongoing 103rd session of the International Labour Conference (ILC) in Geneva on Monday.

It stated that Bangladesh would work for protecting workers rights both in home and abroad.

The ILO Governing Body is composed of 56 titular members -- 28 governments, 14 employers and 14 workers -- and 66 deputy members.

The ILO is providing technical assistance to Bangladesh under its flagship Better Work Programme, aimed at further promoting collective bargaining and improving decent work conditions in the RMG industry.

As the ILO’s executive body, the governing body takes decisions on ILO’s policies and its programme and budget, and also elects the Director General.

Bangladesh’s membership in the ILO governing body would allow it to reflect its labour market concerns and priorities in agenda setting for the ILO’s work.
