Social Dialogue in the Process of Structural Adjustment and Private Sector Participation in Ports: A Practical Guidance Manual

Front Cover
International Labour Organization, 2006 - Business & Economics - 93 pages
Social dialogue describes a cooperative approach to labour relations that includes features such as information exchange, consultation and negotiation. This manual provides guidance on managing and facilitating these processes in the world's ports; targeting particularly those who are involved in, or are currently planning, major programs of structural adjustment and private sector participation. It is divided into two parts. Part 1 focuses on the importance of social dialogue during periods of structural adjustment and the fact that it is an ongoing process. Part 2 examines the different phases - planning, initiating, implementing, monitoring, and evaluation; and the activities associated with each phase.
