Greece -High-level ILO mission to Greece -September 27, 2011

On 27 September, an ILO High Level Mission to Greece finished a full week of extensive meetings with all relevant actors of the country’s labour market. The mandate of the mission arose from complaints concerning the application of international conventions ratified by Greece in the area of freedom of association, collective bargaining, wages, social security, employment policy, labour inspection and non-discrimination. The mission was led by Guy Ryder, Executive Director for Standards and Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, following a request by ILO supervisory bodies, in particular the independent Committee of Experts and the tripartite Committee on the Application of Standards. A full report of the mission will be delivered to the Greek government and its social partners once meetings scheduled with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the EU also have taken place.
