EESC - Opinion on "The professionalisation of domestic work"
Activity or Event Report
At its 301st session, held in March 2008, the ILO Governing Body decided to put "Decent work for domestic workers" on the agenda of the 99th Session of the International Labour Conference (due to take place in June 2010) in order to have a double discussion on the phenomenon.
The aim is to identify the best way of securing the rights and proper working conditions of this category of worker. The ILO has already opened discussions with the Member States and the social partners on the most appropriate instrument for this purpose.
