Improving Labour Relations and Social Dialogue in Georgia
The EU funds a thirty month project to improve the dialogue between the key actors of the Georgian
labour market, in cooperation with the Government of Georgia and the ILO.
On Monday, 2nd February 2015, the Government of Georgia, the European Union, and the International
Labour Organization (ILO) launched a project entitled “Promoting Labour Relations and Social
Dialogue in Georgia”.
The project will promote the dialogue between the Georgian Government, business, and trade unions at
national, regional, and enterprise level. Through this project, these three main actors will improve their
ability to carry out more efficient negotiations while addressing labour relations, workers' rights and
enterprises' interests.
Sound and harmonious labour relations will also be established through the support to the Georgian
Government, employers, and workers' organisations with trainings, advisory services, and workshops on
key topics such as: negotiations skills, international labour standards, industrial relations, better
organisation and representation of trade unions.
The European Union is providing € 400.000 over the period of thirty months, and the project will be
carried out by the ILO. The action will further expand with more mediators in regions, and covering more
'industrial' sectors. For these additional services the European Union will provide € 600.000 under the
programme 'Human Rights for All' (€ 10 million).
