Decent Work in Global Supply Chains

Unit 7, Lecture 2 - Addressing the decent work gaps


The role of the state is to enact either through legislation or through promotion of good practices, compliance with the international labor standards

Still trying to make legal obligation as part of the role of the state plus understand the role of trade unions and business in GSCs.

Action areas:
- knowledge building
- capacity building
- advocacy

ITUC Perspective (they want):
- to build global architecture
- Convention at the ILO
- due diligence standard developed and mandated by the OECD - > basis for the foundation of the UN Guiding Principles

ILO – only org discussing quality of employment at the global level / in global supply chains
