“I think it's particularly appropriate that we begin this new series of reports with a subject that is absolutely at the core of our organisation's mandate. Collective bargaining between employers or their organisations and trade unions to set wage rates, working time and other conditions of work.”

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Guy Ryder, Director-General, International Labour Organization (ILO):
“This report is being published as a direct result of the demand from our constituents, from our Member States, and unsurprisingly so, because collective bargaining stands at the heart of the ILO's mandate and its ways of working. It's one of the fundamental principles and rights of work recognised by our organisation and I think there is a need and a new purpose in doing the type of survey that this report contains of how collective bargaining is practiced around the world and what its impact is and what its benefits are.”

“One of the most important findings, general findings, is that one-third of the world's workers, that's a lot of people, benefit from collectively agreed conditions in terms of employment. So, it's a major factor in the way that we work and in the way that we live.”

“It's a worldwide report which covers 125 countries in a great diversity of situations. There are some common factors, and I would point in a world which is both crisis-hit, COVID and now the problems arising from conflict. But even without that, the extraordinary transitions that digitalisation is bringing, also the fight against climate change, or diversification of work forms. We need to deal with new challenges at work.”

“And here's the point about collective bargaining. It is a tremendously valuable instrument for finding solutions to emerging problems and dilemmas. In that sense, it is perhaps the most important Problem-Solving tool that we have in the toolkit of the world of work. And that's why it needs to be promoted, needs to be supported.”

STORYLINE
According to the International Labour Organization (ILO), collective bargaining played a crucial role during the pandemic and can provide an effective means for employers and workers to tackle the new challenges that are shaking up the world of work.

Collective bargaining can advance equality and foster inclusion says a new ILO report, the first of a series of flagship reports on Social Dialogue.

The higher the coverage of employees by collective agreements, the lower the wage differences are, says the report entitled Social Dialogue Report 2022: Collective bargaining for an inclusive, sustainable, and resilient recovery, which is based on a review of collective agreements and practices in 80 countries at different levels of economic development and the legal and regulatory frameworks in 125 countries.

Collective bargaining – the process of voluntary negotiation between one or more employers (or their organizations) and one or more workers’ organizations – can effectively reduce wage inequality, whether in an enterprise, sector, or industry.
