The International Labour Organization (ILO), a United Nations agency, has again condemned British Columbia Liberals poor record on protecting workers human rights.

In a recent report, the ILO slammed the province for violating freedom of association principles. It also recommends the government take specific actions to repair the damage and demands the province come into compliance with international standards.

This is the ninth time in two years the ILO has condemned Premier Gordon Campbells government for trampling on the basic rights of workers, the worst record in North America. Campbell, who faces an election May 17, now has the dubious honour of having had more ILO complaints filed against his government than any other Canadian province in the agencys 84-year history.
