The Conference commits the ITUC-AP, working with affiliates and the GUFs to: promote ratification of the ILO Convention No. 144 concerning Tripartite Consultation to Promote the Implementation of International Labour Standards, support affiliates in setting up effective dispute settlements mechanisms, etc.
