Citizens urged to take advantage of labour laws

As a member of the International Labour Organisation, Barbados is a signatory to dozens of conventions aimed at protecting workers’ rights.

Mindful of this, Chief Labour Officer Claudette Hope-Greenidge is challenging citizens to avail themselves of the conventions and legislation.

She provided insight into a number of the signed conventions during a panel discussion on the fundamental human and workers’ rights of the LGBTQI plus community.

Among those dissected were the freedom of association and protection of the right to organise; equal remuneration and minimum age conventions.

Ms. Hope-Greenidge says the violence and harassment convention ratified by Barbados in 2002 is the first international treaty that recognises the right of everyone to a world of work free from violence and harassment, including gender-based violence.

She says an unwillingness to communicate freely and fairly is creating barriers in the workplace.
