The ICFTU/ITS Basic Code of Labour Practice
The 111th meeting of the ICFTU Executive Board (Brussels, December 1997) adopted a text for a "Basic Code of Conduct covering Labour Practices". The text of this code was developed by the ICFTU/ITS Working Party on Multinational Companies in a process that involved extensive consultations with various trade union organisations and other interested individuals and organisations. It aims to establish a minimum list of standards that ought to be included in all codes of conduct covering labour practices. It is not meant, and should not be interpreted to mean, that codes of conduct that are the result of a collective bargained agreement with an appropriate trade union organisation should be limited to the provisions of this code.
