Decent Work and the Social and Solidarity Economy


The international networks of workers in the informal economy and WIEGO welcome the ILO Report on Decent Work and the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE) prepared for the ILO’s 110th Session and believe that the conclusions of the general discussion on the SSE must be built on the foundation of international instruments referring to SSE units and the ILO decent work agenda. Watch the interventions
This year’s general discussion at the 110th ILC on Decent Work and the Social and Solidarity Economy should build on the principles for an inclusive definition that recognizes the crucial role of workers in informal employment, with an emphasis on supporting diverse social and solidarity economy models as key drivers of economic and social development.

ILO: Major breakthrough on occupational health and safety


Key outcomes of ILO Conference. Working people around the world are set to benefit directly from the decision at the International Labour Conference (ILC) to recognise occupational health and safety as the fifth fundamental principle and right at work.
Over 3 million workers a year die because of their work and tens of millions more suffer injuries and ill health. This victory, from a sustained three-year campaign by trade unions, professionals and practitioners and victims’ families, will begin to turn that deadly tide.
It adds the right to a healthy and safe working environment to the four rights adopted in 1998 by the International Labour Organization (ILO): 1. Freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining. 2. The elimination of forced or compulsory labour. 3. The abolition of child labour. 4. The elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation. Read more
