    Trade Unions and Child Labour: A tool for action

    24 March 2016

    The eradication of child labour is a necessary step on the path to decent work for all and for sustainable development. It requires political will at the national and global levels, implementation of all ILO conventions (particularly Conventions 138 and 182), investment in education and universal social protection, as well as decent work for adults. Trade unions have a vital role to play in bringing about these changes.
