President's Committee on the International Labor Organization Charter Renewal
On September 30, 2013, President Obama continued the President's Committee on the International Labor Organization (ILO) for two years through September 30, 2015 (E.O. 13652, 78 FR 61817 (September 30, 2013)). In response, and pursuant to the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), as amended (5 U.S.C. App. 2), the Secretary of Labor approved on January 14, 2014, renewal of the committee's charter. Purpose: The President's Committee on the International Labor Organization was established in 1980 by Executive Order 12216 to monitor and assess the work of the ILO and make recommendations to the President regarding United States policy towards the ILO. The committee is chaired by the Secretary of Labor and the Department of Labor's Bureau of International Labor Affairs is responsible for providing the necessary support for the committee. The committee is comprised of seven members: The Secretary of Labor (chair), the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Commerce, the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, the Assistant to the President for Economic Policy, and one representative each from organized labor and the business community, designated by the Secretary. The labor and business members are the presidents of the most representative organizations of U.S. workers and employers engaged in ILO matters.
