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.
