Summary of U.S. Submission 2015-01 (Peru) U.S. Submission 2015–01 (Peru) alleges that, by permitting the unlimited consecutive renewal of short-term contracts under the Decree Law 22342, the law that governs contracts in the non- traditional export (NTE) sectors, the Government of Peru has failed to meet its PTPA commitment to adopt and maintain in its statutes and regulations, and practices thereunder, the right of freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining. The submission also cites specific instances to support its allegation that the Government of Peru, through its action or inaction, has failed to uphold its PTPA commitment to effectively enforce its labor laws in the NTE and agricultural sectors with respect to freedom of association, the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining, and acceptable conditions of work.
