Head of International Labour Organisation speaks highly of new Labour Code of Russian Federation

Director-General of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) Juan Somavia highly estimates the new Labour Code of the Russian Federation. He stated this after the talks with Minister of Labour and Social Development of Russia Alexander Pochinok.

The ILO Director-General called the adopted Labour Code "a real achievement", since it reflects "the necessary international norms in the field of labour law".

But Juan Somavia also noted that "one thing is to adopt the Code, and it is an altogether different thing to implement it". In his opinion, it is necessary for the Russian side to concentrate its efforts and attention on the practical side of the Code's operation.

Somavia noted the importance of the new Code as the legal base for carrying out social reforms.

In his opinion, it is necessary to make further headway along the road of the translation of this document into life, in particular, to ensure in Russia training of judges on labour disputes and of labour inspectors, and to practise collective talks.

Alexander Pochinok said that a package of 32 draft laws for the new Code must be passed in Russia within a year, and asked the International Labour Organisation for assistance.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
