Background on the topic
This Standard addresses the topic of freedom of association and collective bargaining. Freedom of association is a human right as defined by international declarations and conventions. In this context, freedom of association refers to the right of employers and workers to form, join, and run their own organizations
without prior authorization or interference by the state or any other entity.
The right of workers to collectively bargain the terms and conditions of work is also an internationally recognized human right. Collective bargaining refers to all negotiations that take place between one or more employers or employers' organizations, on the one hand, and one or more workers' organizations (e.g., trade unions), on the other,
for determining working conditions and terms of employment or for regulating relations between employers and workers.
These concepts are covered in key instruments of the International Labour Organization, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the United Nations: see the Bibliography.
