International Domestic Workers’ Day – call for action

June 2024 – For International Domestic Workers’ Day, on 16 June 2024, the ITUC has called for democracy and decent work for all domestic workers.

ITUC General Secretary Luc Triangle said: “The rights and working conditions of the millions of domestic workers around the world are key issues for the ITUC because they concern core trade union values: gender equality, decent work and democracy.

“Democracy and trade union rights in the workplace are a central part of our For Democracy campaign. Through these rights, domestic workers, the majority of whom are women, can organise and win the decent working conditions they deserve for the critical role they play.

“They provide indispensable care and support in millions of households globally. Their work deserves to be valued and protected by decent work standards, and trade unions must be the natural home for domestic workers to achieve this.”
