Traditional human rights discourse tends to focus on individual rights, although there has always been a collectivist dimension with respect to, for example, rights of association and assembly. However, rights of people at the workplace, individual or collective, are seen as part of a different discourse, that is the discourse of labour law not human rights law. It is true that articles 23-25 of the Universal Declaration concern rights at work and such rights are incorporated into the International Covenant of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. Nevertheless, the status of these rights remains more programmatic than juridical in nature.
