A new social contract cannot ignore care

UN Geneva, 112th International Labour Conference (ILC) – Make Mother Matters (MMM) contributed to the discussion on the International Labour Organisation Director General’s report calling for a new social contract. The statement was supported by the Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors (GCSPF), of which MMM is a member.

Key messages:

In summary, we called for a new social contract that kickstarts a care society as promoted by the Buenos Aires commitments, where the value of care work, whether paid or unpaid, is recognized as valuable and essential work, adequately supported and fairly distributed as per the principle of co-responsibility.

Read the statement, which was delivered in the 112th International Labour Conference‘s plenary on 12 June 2024 by Valerie Bichelmeier, MMM's Vice-President.
