Feb '15
In order to promote decent work in the textile and garment industry in Faisalabad, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the Pakistan Textile Exporters Association (PTEA) have signed a partnership agreement last week.
 
The unique partnership agreement includes a comprehensive framework on improving productivity through training and compliance with international labour standards including occupational safety and health, wages, contracts of employment, discrimination and other forms of mal labour practices as well as strengthening employers’ and workers’ bilateral arrangements in textile industry.
 
The cooperation will continue for three years and will cover more than 200 industrial units (small, medium and large) that are engaged in the textile export, ILO said in a press release.
 
Stating that ILO will provide technical support to the garment and textile industry in Faisalabad, Francesco d’ Ovidio, country director-Pakistan, ILO remarked: “Issues in the garment industry are systemic and require action that helps develop effective industrial relations and promote respect of international labour standards. There is therefore an urgent need to establish strategic and comprehensive public private collaborations.”
 
At the same occasion, Sohail Pasha, chairman PTEA said that the “cooperation is a great opportunity to further strengthen our work towards the establishment of well-functioning industrial units to increase sectoral productivity and competitiveness and reap the benefits from GSP Plus”. (RKS)
