USCIB Webinar: ILO General Discussion on Global Supply Chains


Recent pressure from workers’ groups and certain governments has urged the International Labor Organization (ILO) to focus its attention on global supply chains, which will be the topic of its next General Discussion in June. USCIB hosted a webinar on February 10 about the upcoming discussion, which reviewed how to push back against the unsupported claims that global supply chains will drive down workers’ wages, and that global companies can somehow be made to control their entire supply chains.

The webinar gave members an opportunity to share their perspective on the General Discussion with the Employer spokesperson, Ed Potter, as well as International Organization of Employers Secretary General Linda Kromjong.
