Tripartite Meeting of Experts on Working Time Arrangements
This meeting was the first international policy discussion of working time issues in nearly 20 years. The purpose of the meeting was to review and advise on modern working-time arrangements, which includes identifying the main policy issues that would need to be addressed to develop future ILO guidance for advancing decent work in the area of working time.
The Meeting had before it a report for discussion, Working time in the twenty-first century. This report has been published by the ILO and is available (in pdf) below, along with the final report of the meeting.
