Discrimination at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty

In a letter sent today to the Board of Broadcasting Governors (BBG), the International Labor Rights Forum calls for the U.S. Government agency to end discriminatory employment policies at Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and implement the U.S. Government’s commitments under the OECD Guidelines for Multi-national Enterprises and the United Nations’ Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights.

Dear Mr. Shell,

Update from the Philippines

Even though the Philippine government did not meet any of the human or labor rights conditions required for aid in 2008, the US Department of State provided the Philippines with the full military aid allocation for 2009. As a result of this poor decision, ILRF mobilized hundreds of prominent labor, faith and human rights organizations to call for stricter human rights conditions on US military aid to the Philippines through a sign-on letter distributed widely to US Congressional offices in February.
