Over a period of almost nine months, participating journalists engaged in peer-to-peer learning and exchange of experiences and expertise, as well as training and advice from regional media practitioners, ILO specialists and mentors.
(...) Fellowship participants engaged in two online training workshops, and worked with experts and mentors, to become part of a generation of regional journalists who have a firm understanding of the ILO’s decent work mandate.
Firstly, social dialogue, engaging with workers and employers and their representatives, is vital for building public trust and support for the measures that we need to overcome this crisis.
By linking employment and income-generating opportunities with training and post-training support, TREE serves as a vehicle for the promotion of sustainable rural livelihoods, with engagement from relevant institutional partners. Furthermore, its focus on disadvantaged groups, such as women, young people and persons with disabilities, ensures that growth is inclusive.
Topics for discussion at the regional seminar include among other subjects the gradual developing appropriate regulatory frameworks, engaging employers’ associations and trade unions through social dialogue, national recognition of apprenticeship certification and the facilitator role of the government. (...) Core recommendations at the seminar included the protection of apprentices by labour code provisions and allowing them to engage in social dialogue and collective bargaining like all other workers. In June 2012, tripartite constituents at the International Labour Conference’s committee on The Youth Employment Crisis: Time for Action, called on the ILO to engage in the promotion of quality apprenticeships, including in developing countries.

The threat of criminal and civil prosecution by enterprises wholly or partly owned by the Government is an act of intimidation which takes Bahrain still further away from the course of respect for trade union rights on which it had embarked since 2002 and which has been widely recognized and praised by the ILO in the past.
The ILO has engaged in intensive efforts in recent months to encourage a return to social dialogue in Bahrain; to ensure the safety and protection of trade union leaders; and to promote the reinstatement of up to 2,000 dismissed workers.
