Recently the ACFTU has publicized cases involving serious violations of labour rights it uncovered during inspections in 2014.
Recent findings by the ACFTU show that many employers show apparent disregard for workers’ rights. To reverse the situation, it is imperative to step up enforcement with a vengeance.
To this end, the ACFTU has issued a circular, calling on trade unions around the country to step up inspections, uncover and report to the authorities violations against the law in a timely manner in order to safeguard workers’ rights.
Starting this year, the ACFTU will set up a system to expose and condemn in public gross labour right violations. By gathering information about cases of labour rights abuse and going public with major infractions of the law, the ACFTU aims to push for the implementation of labour laws and regulations.
