PASCN DP 2000-02: Factors Influencing the Observance of the Core ILO Labor Standards by Manufacturing Companies.

This paper aimed to determine the factors that influences the degree of compliance by the manufacturing companies with the six core ILO labor standards ratified by the Philippines Using descriptive and comparative research designs, a survey among 125 unionized and non-unionized manufacturing firms in Metro Manila was conducted with 175 both from the union and management representatives taken as respondents. Results revealed that among the six core labor standards, equal remuneration and freedom from discrimination in employment and occupation were highly complied with, while freedom of association and protection of the right to orgranize were least complied with by the manufacturing firms. Overall, in the firms' level of conformity with the six labor standards is only satisfactory, and there is no significant difference in the average degree of compliance based on their characteristics except fot the level of profitability and the type of respondent It was found out that what management and labor consider as significant facilitating factors affecting the degree of labor standards compliance, are basically related to the contribution of workers in terms of efficiency, productivity, and harmoniuos relations with management; and to the employer's corporate social responsibility of adherence to the laws and respect for the rights and fair treatment of employees
