ETUC welcomes ratification of C189 in Italy

The European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) congratulates the Italian Government on becoming the first European country to ratify ILO Convention 189 on Domestic Work.

The Italian ratification follows a successful campaign by the Italian trade unions that have pressed for a speedy ratification Convention. The campaign forms part of the wider 12 x 12 Campaign that is mobilising European and International trade unions for a full endorsement of the Convention on Domestic Work in all member states of the ILO. Italy is the eight country to ratify the Convention worldwide.
