Conference: 10th Anniversary of ILO Convention on decent work for domestic workers

Registrations are now open for the online European event celebrating the ILO Convention 189 Anniversary.

Until today, seven EU Member States have ratified the Convention. The issue of improving domestic and care workers’ rights remains more than ever a topical issue. The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted both the essential contributions of those workers to our societies and the precarious working and living conditions a vast majority of them still face.

This is why a new alliance of organisations has been formed to work together and acknowledge this important milestone by organising a multi-stakeholder conference on the ILO C189, ten years after its adoption. 

The online event, to be held on 28-29 June 2021, will outline practives and policies to enhance the situation of personal and household services workers. 

Live interpretation will be available in English, French, Italian, German, Polish, Romanian and Spanish.

The agenda and registration link to the event are available here.
