Delegates representing workers, employers and governments from the ILO’s 187 Member States will address a broad range of issues affecting the world of work. These include:
- Quality apprenticeships – a second discussion on the possibilities for a new labour standard.
- Social protection (labour protection) – a recurrent discussion on this strategic objective.
- A general discussion on a just transition, including consideration of industrial policies and technology, to progress towards environmentally sustainable economies and societies for all.
- Proposals for a Convention and Recommendation concerning the partial revision of 15 international labour instruments, following the inclusion of the principle of a safe and healthy working environment within the ILO’s framework of fundamental principles and rights at work.
In addition, a high-level World of Work Summit will take place on the 14 and 15 June, on the theme of “Social Justice for All”. The Summit will include addresses and panel discussions that will bring together Heads of State and Government, the ILO Director-General, and high-level representatives from the United Nations, other international organizations, and employers’ and workers’ organizations. It will be an opportunity for a wide-ranging exchange of views and ideas on the need for increased, coordinated and coherent action in support of social justice. It will also provide an opportunity to discuss the Global Coalition for Social Justice, a proposed initiative that was welcomed by the Governing Body of the International Labour Office at its 347th Session in March 2023.
Further details of the International Labour Conference’s agenda will be available on the Conference website. Information on the work of the technical committees will also be posted on the committees’ own webpages, as it becomes available.
Journalists wishing to attend sessions of the Committee on the Application of Standards will need to be accompanied by a Department of Communication staff member.
