The article argues that the ILO’s Committee of Freedom of Association proceedings against dictatorships during the seventies, eighties and nineties in Latin America were a relevant site of conflict for the region’s dictatorships, even when they did not stop the military from attacking workers, unions and labour rights. By examining the most critical Cases opened in Geneva against Chile and Argentina between 1973–1990, the article explores the ILO’s actions, the implicated voices, and the effects of the Cases before and after the coups while reflecting on the importance (and limitations) of international trade unionism solidarities and international efforts during the period.
