KATHMANDU: International Labour Organisation (ILO) has said that workers and employers should hold dialogues and reach a consensus to address the disrupted labour relationship during this crisis.
“Neither the government nor agencies like ILO can provide readymade solutions for labour issues resulted by the COVID-19.
The two parties should hold repeated consultations and dialogues and ultimately reach a middle ground and ensure that labour relationship is intact today and tomorrow,” said Richard Howard, director at ILO office in Nepal.
As per him, these parties should figure out a win-win solution for both parties while the government should create an environment for negotiation and facilitate both the parties through necessary policy guidance.
