Legislative provisions on consultation

Ms. Gloria Beatriz Gaviria Ramos, Chief, Oficina de Cooperación y Relaciones Internacionales, Ministerio del Trabajo, Colombia described legislative provision on tripartite consultation.

“Under Colombian law, our political Constitution, a National Consultation Committee was set up, which is the highest tripartite body existing in Colombia and this Committee specifically deals with all obligations associated with ILS, reports and the ratification of Conventions  – and this Committee asked the International Affairs Committee [ … ], which we set up, to deal with all these cases. This Committee meets once a month and recently, for example, we held a meeting to decide on the make-up of the Conference delegation – but we also carries out a tripartite analysis on the reports that we are to present to the ILO.”
