Topic: Right To Organize

The right to organize is a fundamental right in terms of workers’ rights. Brazil, as a staunch advocate for workers’ rights, recognizes the importance of safeguarding the right to organize and is committed to fostering an environment that empowers workers to freely associate and collectively bargain.
In line with international norms, Brazil emphasizes the importance of the right to organize as guaranteed by its national laws. The 1988 Brazilian Constitution expressly guarantees employees’ freedom to organize trade unions and participate in collective bargaining. Furthermore, Convention No. 87 on Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organize is one of the major ILO conventions that Brazil has ratified.
Brazil has taken steps to encourage positive communication between labor unions and companies. The nation has put in place legislative frameworks that support discussions on pay, hours worked, and other aspects of employment. Brazil is dedicated to fostering an atmosphere in which good faith collective bargaining is practiced, guaranteeing that employees have a significant say in determining their working circumstances.
Brazil admits that obstacles to exercising the right to organize still exist, such as instances of anti-union behavior and unorganized work sectors. Brazil is dedicated to supplying capacity-building programs for both companies and employees, increasing understanding of workers’ rights, and fortifying enforcement mechanisms to solve these issues.
Brazil reaffirms its constant commitment to protecting and advancing the freedom to organize. The administration stresses how crucial it is to have an atmosphere that permits employees to freely organize and participate in collective bargaining. Brazil recognizes that the freedom to organize is essential to the global growth of workers’ rights and social justice, and it looks forward to working with other ILO members to uphold and defend this right.
