World Day for Decent Work

Since its founding in 2008, millions of people have taken part in events for the World Day for Decent Work (WDDW), 7 October, demanding that decent work be placed at the centre of government action for economic growth, building a new global economy that puts people first, based around the New Social Contract.

No action is too big or too small for the WDDW – i.e., a workplace discussion, a huge demonstration, a protest letter or something completely different.

Whatever you choose to do to mark the WDDW, please keep us informed by sending your information and questions to [email protected].

Look at the stories below for an understanding of the issues the WDDW entails, such as:

  • Wage justice
  • Workplace rights
  • Collective bargaining
  • Living minimum wages
  • Job plans and decent work
