What kind of labor shortage?  Workers’ rights are ignored in most countries of the world

It was published this year for the tenth time Annual Report On the global status of workers’ rights by the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC). According to an analysis of the classification of 149 countries, the global livelihood crisis has been accompanied by a decline in workers’ rights in all regions of the world. This year’s survey shows that in the case of many employee rights, the percentage of countries violating these rights has risen to or near a record level. According to the main findings of the report

  • The right to strike was violated in 87% of countries.
  • The right to collective bargaining was violated in 79% of countries.
  • In 77% of countries, workers were not guaranteed the right to form or join a trade union.
  • In 73% of countries, trade union registration was prohibited.
  • Workers’ access to justice was denied or restricted in 65% of countries.
  • In 42% of countries, the freedom of expression and assembly of workers defending their rights has been restricted.
  • Workers have been detained and arrested in 69 countries.
  • In 44 countries, law enforcement officials acted violently against workers.
  • Union members were killed in 8 countries.

In terms of enforcing employee rights, the following countries make up the ten worst-performing countries in the world this year:

  • bangladesh,
  • ecuador,
  • Egypt,
  • Belarus,
  • Filipino,
  • Guatemala,
  • myanmar,
  • Tunisia,
  • swaziland,
  • turkey

The report divided the 149 countries included in the study into six categories according to the extent of respect for workers’ rights in the country in question. A score of 1 is considered the best, while a score of 5 or 5+ is the worst. In Tier 5 countries, there is no guarantee of compliance with employee rights. The situation is the same for countries in the 5+ category, except that this occurred due to the disintegration of the rule of law.
