Child Labour and Education for All

A resource Guide for trade unions and a call against Child Labour and for Education for All.

The effective elimination of all forms of child labour is a key objective of the international trade union movement. Universal access to free, quality, compulsory, basic education is the foundation stone to achieve this goal. ILO Convention 138 makes clear the linkages between the elimination of child labour and access to quality basic education for all children.

It is against this background that ACTRAV and Education International have collaborated to develop a trade union manual on Child Labour and Education for All, for use by trade unions in policy advocacy, campaigns, training programmes and other activities.
