World Day for Decent Work

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the World Day for Decent Work (WDDW), which will fall on 7 October. This year, the global focus is on the world struggle for living minimum wages and a pay rise for all workers.

Governments should heed the call from working women and men for decent wages, safe and secure jobs, and an end to greedy corporations setting the rules of the economy. This means ensuring that minimum wage-floors must be enough to ensure a decent standard of living, and that all workers must have the right to join a union and bargain collectively.
The ITUC has prepared social media graphics and content which can be used on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

All the materials can be downloaded in different languages from the World Day for Decent Work web page www.wddw.org

Share your photos and action on social media using the #wddw hashtag and if you wish, also using #decentwork. #EndCorporateGreed. Using #wddw will help us collate actions on the ITUC website. This year, October 7 falls on a Saturday, which means that some organisations may decide to hold events during the week before or after. We will be monitoring activities as from Monday 2 October.
