Events on PHS not to be missed!

Numerous high-level debates on Personal and Household services will be held in the course of June. Make sure that you will not miss them!

  • June 16: ILO webinar - International Domestic Workers’ Day: making decent work a reality beyond COVID-19. Domestic workers have been among the workers the most affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. Their contribution to households has been immense, even while the pandemic has threatened their livelihoods. Since the adoption of ILO Convention 189 on decent work for domestic workers, many countries around the world have worked to improve their protection. In 2021, the ILO will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of Convention 189. Rather than let COVID-19 roll back important gains, please join the ILO in hearing from domestic workers about some of their most urgent needs for protection, and make sure they enjoy decent work now and in the future.
  • June 18: joint ETUI-AIAS webinar - Job Quality in PHS: towards better regulation. The webinar will present the results of a comparative research project on PHS in ten EU countries - Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Spain and the UK. It analyses the existing public policies and social partners' strategies towards personal and household services in these countries from a comparative and multidisciplinary perspective. It also discusses how legal regulation, public policy, and social partners’ actions should be adjusted to improve job quality and reduce informality in the PHS sector.

  • June 24: Ad-PHS national workshop in Poland and Hungary. The meetings will be held online in national language and English. They aim to initiate a discussion at local level and facilitate pan-European exchange of good practices and mutual learning. Workshops will bring together partners and stakeholders from the PHS sector to discuss the current PHS regulatory framework , professionalisation and how to build social partners capacity for collective bargaining and social dialogue in the sector.
