The World

The United States intends to step up participation in the International Labor Organization as a way to pursue criticism of Soviet labor and human rights practices. Secretary of State George P. Shultz and Secretary of Labor William E. Brock III told a Senate committee that the Administration will consider ratification of ILO conventions when they seem consistent with American law. The United States withdrew from the ILO in 1977 to protest criticism of U.S. policies on extraneous issues. It rejoined in 1980.
