    Iraqi Unions Propose New Labor Law to Parliament

    One of the lingering manifestations of the Saddam Hussein regime is Law 150, which bans workers from organizing unions in the public sector. Despite repeated efforts by the Iraqi labor movement, the US Occupation Authority, followed by every Iraqi government since the end of US military occupation, continued to enforce the Saddam-era law. The Iraqi labor movement has not given up that struggle. The unions are about to propose a new draft labor law to parliament that would rescind the old law and establish the right of all Iraqi workers to organize, bargain and strike - rights recognized in international law under the International Labour Organization Conventions. USLAW has posted the exchange of correspondence (in English and Arabic) between the Conference of Iraqi Federations and Workers Unions and the ILO. As soon as we clarify what form of support would be most helpful, USLAW will issue action alerts to enable American workers and their unions to express their solidarity with the Iraqi labor movement.
