International Labour Organisation (ILO)

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) is a tripartite UN agency that brings together governments, employers and workers in common actions to promote opportunities for women and men to engage in decent productive work. The ILO campaigns to promote social justice and the recognition and adoption of internationally recognised human and labour rights. The organisation provides technical assistance to countries worldwide to encourage participation in the Decent Work Agenda.

The goal of Decent Work for All and the pledges in the Millennium Declaration go hand in hand. The ILO’s Decent Work Agenda, in a context of fair globalization, is essential to the achievement of these shared aims.
