Tripartite consultation

This is the second General Survey on the 1976 instruments on tripartite consultation. The focus of this Survey relates specifically to the requirements for consultation with regard to international labour standards or other aspects of the ILO’s activities covered by Recommendation No. 152.

The Convention goes much further than the mere obligation of the communication of information laid down in article 23, paragraph 2, of the Constitution, since it commits ratifying States to hold consultations on each of the measures to be taken at the national level in regard to international labour standards.
