Taipei, June 3 (CNA) Taiwan’s bid to participate in this year’s conference of the
International Labour Organization (ILO) was rejected, marking another setback it is facing in participating in international gatherings, after it was excluded from the World Health Assembly last month, an official of the New Power Party (NPP) said Saturday.
The 106th session of the International Labour Conference, a high-level annual event of the ILO, will be held in Geneva, Switzerland from June 5-17.
But NPP Secretary-General Chen Hui-ming (陳惠敏) said the party was recently informed that several Taiwan trade unions under the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), and the Taipei-based Chinese National Federation of Industries are excluded from this year’s conference. [FULL STORY]
