      <P>
      <P>The General Conference of the International Labour Organisation,
      <P>
      <P>Having been convened at Geneva by the Governing Body of the 
      International Labour Office, and having met in its Sixty-fourth Session on 
      7 June 1978, and
      <P>
      <P>Recalling the terms of existing international labour Conventions and 
      Recommendations, including in particular the Labour Inspection Convention, 
      1947, the Labour Inspection (Agriculture) Convention, 1969, and the 
      Employment Service Convention, 1948, which call for the exercise of 
      particular labour administration activities, and
      <P>
      <P>Considering it desirable to adopt instruments establishing guidelines 
      regarding the over-all system of labour administration, and
      <P>
      <P>Recalling the terms of the Employment Policy Convention, 1964, and of 
      the Human Resources Development Convention, 1975; recalling also the goal 
      of the creation of full and adequately remunerated employment and 
      affirming the need for programmes of labour administration to work towards 
      this goal and to give effect to the objectives of the said Conventions, 
and
      <P>
      <P>Recognising the necessity of fully respecting the autonomy of 
      employers' and workers' organisations, recalling in this connection the 
      terms of existing international labour Conventions and Recommendations 
      guaranteeing rights of association, organisation and collective 
      bargaining--and particularly the Freedom of Association and Protection of 
      the Right to Organise Convention, 1948, and the Right to Organise and 
      Collective Bargaining Convention, 1949--which forbid any interference by 
      public authorities which would restrict these rights or impede the lawful 
      exercise thereof, and considering that employers' and workers' 
      organisations have essential roles in attaining the objectives of 
      economic, social and cultural progress, and
      <P>
      <P>Having decided upon the adoption of certain proposals with regard to 
      labour administration: role, functions and organisation, which is the 
      fourth item on the agenda of the session, and
      <P>
      <P>Having determined that these proposals shall take the form of an 
      international Convention,
      <P>
      <P>adopts this twenty-sixth day of June of the year one thousand nine 
      hundred and seventy-eight the following Convention, which may be cited as 
      the Labour Administration Convention, 1978:
      <P>
      <P>
      <P>
      <P>Article 1
      <P>For the purpose of this Convention--
      <P>(a) the term <I>labour administration </I>means public administration 
      activities in the field of national labour policy;
      <P>(b) the term <I>system of labour administration </I>covers all public 
      administration bodies responsible for and/or engaged in labour 
      administration--whether they are ministerial departments or public 
      agencies, including parastatal and regional or local agencies or any other 
      form of decentralised administration --and any institutional framework for 
      the co-ordination of the activities of such bodies and for consultation 
      with and participation by employers and workers and their organisations.
      <P>
      <P>Article 2
      <P>A Member which ratifies this Convention may, in accordance with 
      national laws or regulations, or national practice, delegate or entrust 
      certain activities of labour administration to non-governmental 
      organisations, particularly employers' and workers' organisations, 
      or--where appropriate--to employers' and workers' representatives.
      <P>
      <P>Article 3
      <P>A Member which ratifies this Convention may regard particular 
      activities in the field of its national labour policy as being matters 
      which, in accordance with national laws or regulations, or national 
      practice, are regulated by having recourse to direct negotiations between 
      employers' and workers' organisations.
      <P>
      <P>Article 4
      <P>Each Member which ratifies this Convention shall, in a manner 
      appropriate to national conditions, ensure the organisation and effective 
      operation in its territory of a system of labour administration, the 
      functions and responsibilities of which are properly co-ordinated.
      <P>
      <P>Article 5
      <P>1. Each Member which ratifies this Convention shall make arrangements 
      appropriate to national conditions to secure, within the system of labour 
      administration, consultation, co-operation and negotiation between the

      and workers, or--where appropriate--employers' and workers' 
      representatives.
      <P>
      <P>2. To the extent compatible with national laws and regulations, and 
      national practice, such arrangements shall be made at the national,

      <P>Article 6
      <P>1. The competent bodies within the system of labour administration

      administration for the preparation and implementation of laws and 
      regulations giving effect thereto.
      <P>
      <P>2. In particular, these bodies, taking into account international 
      labour standards, shall--

      checking and review of national employment policy, in accordance with 
      national laws and regulations, and national practice;
      <P>(b) study and keep under review the situation of employed, unemployed 
      and underemployed persons, taking into account national laws and 
      regulations and national practice concerning conditions of work and 
      working life and terms of employment, draw attention to defects and abuses 
      in such conditions and terms and submit proposals on means to overcome 
      them;
      <P>(c) make their services available to employers and workers, and their 
      respective organisations, as may be appropriate under national laws or 
      regulations, or national practice, with a view to the promotion--at 
      national, regional and local levels as well as at the level of the 
      different sectors of economic activity --of effective consultation and 
      co-operation between public authorities and bodies and employers' and 
      workers' organisations, as well as between such organisations;
      <P>(d) make technical advice available to employers and workers and their 
      respective organisations on their request.
      <P>
      <P>Article 7
      <P>When national conditions so require, with a view to meeting the needs 
      of the largest possible number of workers, and in so far as such 
      activities are not already covered, each Member which ratifies this 
      Convention shall promote the extension, by gradual stages if necessary, of 
      the functions of the system of labour administration to include 
      activities, to be carried out in co-operation with other competent bodies, 
      relating to the conditions of work and working life of appropriate 
      categories of workers who are not, in law, employed persons, such as--
      <P>(a) tenants who do not engage outside help, sharecroppers and similar 
      categories of agricultural workers;
      <P>(b) self-employed workers who do not engage outside help, occupied in 
      the informal sector as understood in national practice;
      <P>(c) members of co-operatives and worker-managed undertakings;
      <P>(d) persons working under systems established by communal customs or 
      traditions.
      <P>
      <P>Article 8
      <P>To the extent compatible with national laws and regulations and 
      national practice, the competent bodies within the system of labour 
      administration shall contribute to the preparation of national policy 
      concerning international labour affairs, participate in the representation 
      of the State with respect to such affairs and contribute to the 
      preparation of measures to be taken at the national level with respect 
      thereto.
      <P>
      <P>Article 9
      <P>With a view to the proper co-ordination of the functions and 
      responsibilities of the system of labour administration, in a manner 
      determined by national laws or regulations, or national practice, a 
      ministry of labour or another comparable body shall have the means to 
      ascertain whether any parastatal agencies which may be responsible for 
      particular labour administration activities, and any regional or local 
      agencies to which particular labour administration activities may have 
      been delegated, are operating in accordance with national laws and 
      regulations and are adhering to the objectives assigned to them.
      <P>
      <P>Article 10
      <P>1. The staff of the labour administration system shall be composed of

      <P>
      <P>2. Such staff shall have the status, the material means and the
