The Centenary International Labour Conference’s adoption of a Convention and Recommendation on Violence and Harassment in the World of Work (C190) is a milestone for the working class across the world and reaffirms the value of tripartism and our role as workers in developing international labour standards and rights.

PSI is organising a global meeting prior to the World Women’s Committee to assess our victories in terms of Violence and Harassment in the World of Work, to plan what comes next and to present a proposal for WOC’s endorsement.
