WP-2016-04: Gap Analysis of ILO Convention 129, Labour Inspection (Agriculture)

Labour inspections have been viewed as an important way of ensuring that labour standards enshrined in the International Labour Organization (ILO) conventions and corresponding national laws are maintained. The International Labour Organization (ILO) has two core labour inspection conventions: (a) the ILO Labour Inspection Convention, 1947 (No. 81) and (b) the ILO Labour Inspection (Agriculture) Convention, 1969 (No. 129). Convention 81 sets out the basis international standards, while Convention 129 acts as a supplemental instrument taking into account the special characteristics of the agriculture sector. Despite the strong call by the ILO for its Member Countries to ratify ILO Convention 129, the distinct characteristics of the sector poses a great challenge for the Member countries to comply with the Convention. Since the Philippine has not yet ratified the said Convention, various stakeholders have expressed divergent concerns and apprehensions on their capacity to comply with the standards stipulated in ILO Convention 129. Hence, this gap analysis was undertaken to assess and determine the extent to which national laws, regulations and other measures including country practices complement the requirements of the ILO Convention 129.
