World parliament of labour heads for ground-breaking new standards on violence at work and supports renewed push for gender equality.
The International Labour Conference ended on 8 June with a call by the head of the ILO to “nurture, protect and practice” social dialogue.
Tripartism – bringing together governments, employers and workers – “not only adds value in the world of work, but is a most potent antidote to some of those negative trends we are observing in public and political discourse,” said ILO Director-General Guy Ryder.
He noted the progress made by the three groups in negotiating possible new standards on violence and harassment at work. He said that he was confident about a positive outcome of this discussion “because of the sheer importance of what is at stake. Truly this issue is too big for us to fail.”
