About the book

About the book

This was one of the last major pieces of legislation introduced by Chavez before his re-election as President in October 2012 and his untimely death in February 2013. As with all publications in the Comparative Notes series, it offers an insight into alternative frameworks of labour law.

In an age when the slogan “there is no alternative” is prevalent, it is important to see positive examples of how the law can operate to the benefit of workers and their unions.

Now, as we approach the 2nd anniversary of the introduction of the new laws, it is interesting to compare and contrast State attitudes to workers, to unions, to access to justice and to companies who fail to comply with the law.
