Norway - Prevention of forced labour and social dumping - December 31, 2015

Campaigners are celebrating a significant victory in the fight to end all forms of forced labour and trafficking after the country ratified the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Forced Labour Protocol, which strengthens and updates the 1930 Forced Labour Convention (Convention 29) by adding new measures to prevent, protect and compensate those affected. Trade union confederation LO stated that in many societies the issues that Convention 29 was created to deal with are still unpleasantly current. The trade union’s experience is that forced labour appears together with social dumping and violations of the Working Environment Act and criminal activities.
