Mohammed Sameer's Friends' Facebook Notes - Tue, 07/06/2011 - 5:55am

The MFA delegation is in the 100th Session of the International Labour

Conference, in Geneva, Switzerland, advocating for an ILO Convention

on Domestic Work. We would like to share with you the MFA Statement

read by Ms. Ristanti.

 

It is fitting that the milestone 100th Session of the ILC be marked

with a return to its social justice roots – a landmark Convention

supplemented by a Recommendation setting international standards to

protect the rights and welfare of one of the most vulnerable groups of

workers. This 100th Session will be remembered for remedying one of

the most pressing injustices in the modern world of work.

 

MFA reiterates the call of different members of this committee for a

flexible yet robust Convention, at the heart of which is the key

binding recognition that domestic work is work, like every other work.

 

You can also find and download the full statement from the MFA

website, http://www.mfasia.org/, We will post and send more updates of the ILC

proceedings soon.

 

Courage, Peace, Power in a life full of meaning.
