The Right to Information for Collective Bargaining

One of the challenges faced by unions representing workers in transnational companies is the lack of information about the company’s financial situation and business plans at local, national and global levels.
Without this information unions will approach the bargaining table at a serious disadvantage. Basically they end up relying on local management as the only source of information (and often this is just verbal or just a ‘snapshot’).

IUF Asia Pacific has issued a short overview of  the right to information in key international treaties and guidelines regulating transnational companies.
