The ITUC seeks to increase intergovernmental cooperation to ensure that the social dimension of globalisation, including decent work and fundamental workers’ rights, is right at the centre of decision-making at the world’s major global and regional institutions. This includes the G-20, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Trade Organisation (WTO), and the United Nations and its specialised agencies, especially the International Labour Organisation (ILO) with its tripartite structure and mandate to set international social standards.
