Special procedures - Article 19

The COI report is published and actions are required

If a complaint has been initiated by Employers’ or Workers’ delegates, their respective groups become consulting actors after the Governing Body has appointed a COI and the report is published.

Once the Governing Body acts on a complaint lodged by Employers’ or Workers’ delegates to the International Labour Conference, these same delegates play no further role in the procedure. Employers’ and workers’ organizations having consultative status with the ILO may be invited by the COI to present information in relation to the work and report of a COI. The Employers’ and Workers’ groups in the Governing Body continue to inform the work of the Governing Body as constituents. A government that has initiated a complaint may refer it to the ICJ, but the ILO Constitution does not give complainant delegates the opportunity to refer their complaint to the ICJ.
