Title: [02PacRimLPolyJ063] Thailand's State Enterprise Labor Relations Act: Denying Public Employees the Right of Association and the Right to Organize and Bargain Collectively
Author: Doelman, Kelly A.; Pacific Rim Law & Policy Journal
Abstract: Abstract: On April 15, 1991, Thailand's new legislative body enacted the State Enterprise Labor Relations Act, removing public employees from the dominion of the Labor Relations Act and dissolving the existing public labor unions. This Act has had a crippling effect on the entire Thai labor movement, which historically relied on the leadership and influence of public unions to promote private industry worker interests. This Comment argues that the State Enterprise Labor Relations Act contains many provisions which violate internationally accepted labor standards, specifically the right of association and the right to organize and bargain collectively. This Comment further asserts that the Act should be amended to conform with these standards so that it meets the needs of both the Thai government and public enterprise workers.
