PA Minister of Labour calls on the International Labour Organization “to obligate Israel to abide by the international organization’s regulations… and to stop its violations against the Palestinian workers”

Headline: “Abu Shahla calls on the International Labour Organization to stop the Israeli violations against our workers”

“[PA] Minister of Labour Ma'moun Abu Shahla yesterday [May 31, 2018] called on the International Labour Organization to obligate Israel to abide by the international organization’s regulations and criteria, and to stop its violations against the Palestinian workers and the denial of their rights.
Abu Shahla said this as part of his statements during the meetings of the International Labour Organization’s 107th session at the UN headquarters in Geneva, which he participated in at the head of a delegation of the [PA] Ministry [of Labor].
Abu Shahla said that Palestinian workers are still suffering from the most horrible actions by the occupation government, which are expressed by the continued employment of workers through a middleman, inhumane treatment at the military checkpoints, non-implementation of the health and occupational safety regulations and appropriate work regulations at the Israeli places of employment, and the continued hiding of information regarding the extent of the Palestinian workers’ financial rights that have accumulated [in Israel] since 1970 as individual rights, which contradicts the basic principles of the International Labour Organization.
He also added that all of these violations appeared in a report of the International Labour Organization’s director-general regarding the condition of the workers in the occupied Arab territories.”
