Answering the long standing public policy issue in labor relations, this brief puts forward:
(a) a framework for analyzing the interrelations between labor relations policy objectives, policy interventions
and policy outcomes; (b) an understanding of the policy context and available alternatives; and (c) policy

It echoes the urgent call by identifying
key recommendations to reform Book Five of the Labor Code, as amended, making it responsive to the many
changes that have transpired in the labor market extensively and particularly affecting labor relations.
