12 by 12 campaign, meaning that we campaign for twelve ratification of C 189 in 2012. Beyond the twelve, we will in addition, focus on those countries, which have been supportive during the ILO negotiations and in which we have active domestic workers’ organizations. Only by building strong organizations of domestic workers, with broad based alliances, we will be able to make “decent work for domestic workers” a reality.

This will be the first time that domestic workers are declared internationally as workers. We should enjoy labour rights and should be treated equally with other workers.
