GLI is pleased to announce that the booklet ‘Ten Years Since Winning C189: Domestic Workers Become an Unstoppable Movement’ is now available to view and download.
On 16 June 2011, the 70 million domestic workers across the globe finally won the right to be recognised as workers, with the basic rights of all workers. That day, the International Labour Organisation agreed to adopt a new Convention No.189 (C189) Decent Work for Domestic Workers.
In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of C189, the International Domestic Workers Federation (IDWF) and Women in Informal Employment: Globalizing and Organizing (WIEGO) comissioned the Global Labour Institute to develop a follow-up booklet to “Yes, We Did It! How the World’s Domestic Workers Won Their International Rights and Recognition”. This new booklet celebrates the progress made for domestic workers since the adoption of ILO C189, and looks to the challenges that still lie ahead. You can read it here.
