"I count on my government to fully support the adoption of an effective and impactful ILO Convention and Recommendation on ending violence and harassment in the world of work, with a strong focus on gender-based violence, at the 108th Session of the International Labour Conference in June 2019"
#MeToo revealed just how widespread women’s experience of violence and harassment is. Globally, it is a reality for 818 million women. We know there’s a problem, it’s time to do something about it.
Yet currently, only a few countries have effective laws and policies to prevent, address and remedy gender-based violence and harassment in the world of work. There is a chance now to change that:
From 10 to 21 June 2019, governments, employers and trade unions will negotiate an international law on ending violence and harassment in the world of work at the centenary International Labour Conference in Geneva. The support from your government is critical!
Sign the petition: ask your government today to support the adoption of this new international law: an effective ILO Convention and Recommendation.
