Workers' rights violations

Right to trade union activities

In June 2022, yellow trade unions aligned with the government of the Central African Republic presented an appeal to the Labour Minister, asking that the 2003 Decree, designating the most representative workers’ organisations in the country, be revoked. This direct appeal to the executive, which was made in total disregard of the representativity criteria and established procedures, was a clear attempt at removing genuine representation of workers in tripartite social dialogue, including at the ILO's annual International Labour Conference. Despite this, in a decision made on the 15 July 2022, the Labour Minister acceded to their request and declared that a rotation system of representation between the various workers’ organisations would be put in place.
