Objectives

  • Provide an overview of what C189 accomplished and what it yet must do.
  • Demonstrate how domestic workers have used C189 for advocacy
  • Shed light on implementation gaps.
  • Discuss how ratification of C189 improved response on social protection for Domestic Workers under the pandemic.

Description

The year 2021 marks the tenth anniversary of the adoption of ILO Domestic Workers Convention C189. While 31 ratification and 29 entrance to force since, the situation of Domestic Workers across the world is fragile due to the ongoing pandemic, paired with other structural inequalities they face. The panel adopts a 360-degree view on the increased need for ratification and implementation of C189 considering the pandemic and the various positions of domestic workers on the citizenship/migration and regularity/irregularity spectrum. It highlights the resilience of DW to urge for a holistic approach to local policy reform backed by global commitment.

Working on C189 must continue to:

  • Ensure decent work for domestic workers, mostly women, disproportionately suffering from labor violations due to the informal and/or invisible nature of work.
  • Connect the ratification and implementation of C189 to the ongoing efforts to improve the care economy for an equitable recovery from the pandemic.
  • Connect international standards to success stories from grassroots organizing and decentralized governance (municipal-level work).
  • Increase the power of collective bargaining through the lessons learned from the ratification and implementation of the convention.
  • Eliminate gender-based violence through the recognition of the private household as a space of work, and in symbiosis with C190.
