Secretary Signs Agreement with Indian Counterpart

DOL and other U.S. authorities will work with India's officials on common issues, including workers' safety and mine safety and health.

U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis and Minister of Labour and Employment Mallikarjun Kharge of the Republic of India signed a memorandum of understanding to cooperate on future labor and employment issues on Feb. 2.

The document sets up a framework for conducting dialogue and cooperative activities between the United States and India on labor and employment issues. It follows a 2010 meeting between Solis and Kharge following a conference of the G20 labor and employment ministers hosted by the U.S. Department of Labor.

"Our governments share a firm commitment to workers and their rights," said Solis. "Today marks the launch of a new program to share valuable information that will ensure that workers' rights are respected."

The MOU opens the door for DOL and other U.S. officials and experts to work with Indian authorities on common issues, including skills development, youth employment, mine safety and health, and occupational safety and health issues. More information about the memorandum will be available at http://www.dol.gov/ilab/.
