Seven Years–And There’s Still No Labor Law in Iraq

Alan Johnson: Seven Years–And There’s Still No Labor Law in Iraq

Seven years since the invasion and Iraq still does not have a labor law. Workers in the public sector are denied the right to organise and join trade unions and collective bargaining is almost impossible. It?s a disgrace. The good news that the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) has set up an Iraqi Labour Campaign: For a Fair and Just Labour Law. For a short history of the Iraqi unions before and after the invasion order this rather splendid pamphlet from the TUC.
