  1. Domestic Workers Day – “My Fair Home” campaign launch Monday 15 June – Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand (FCCT), Bangkok

    Domestic Workers’ Day, celebrated around the world on 16 June, commemorates the 2011 International Convention that extended legal protection to over 50 million domestic workers across the world. The ILO’s Convention No. 189 on Decent Work for Domestic Workers has been ratified by 17 governments, including the Philippines. This year, we invite employers of domestic workers in the Asia Pacific region to join the “My Fair Home” campaign, and ratify the principles of C189 in their own homes. The campaign, a collaboration between the International Domestic Workers Federation (IDWF) and the ILO, will be launched on 15 June 2015 in Bangkok, with a press panel event featuring Ms Erwiana Sulistyaningsih, Indonesian domestic worker advocate.
