THE International Labour Organization hopes to send its second direct contact mission to Fiji soon.
ILO specialist on worker activities Shigeru Wada said the move was part of efforts to address cases and complaints highlighted to the ILO by the Fiji Trades Union Congress and the Fiji Teachers Union.
"We have a special committee on freedom of association and have about 3000 registered cases from around the world that we are dealing with," Mr Wada said.
The initial direct contact mission that arrived in September 2012 was ordered by the Prime Minister's Office to leave the country.
Mr Wada said: "Our governing body proposed this because of the seriousness and urgency of cases highlighted from Fiji in the last few years."
He noted that the findings and recommendations by the ILO's advisory mechanism and committee of freedom of association were passed onto the government.
"While the mission group sent in 2012 was told to leave, the ILO has now, after two years, agreed with the Fiji Government to send another."
Mr Wada was part of a workshop on freedom of association.
