Philippine Tripartite Constituents Support Decent Work for Domestic Workers: Unanimous Call for an International Convention to Set Standards

The Philippine government, workers groups and employers groups have collaborated together with non-government organizations, faith-based institutions, local and overseas domestic workers groups as they embark on the Philippine Campaign on Decent Work for Domestic Workers.

The Philippine campaign is envisioned to serve as the primary vehicle to generate massive public support in the advocacy to extend decent work to domestic workers. A technical working group is convened to lead and coordinate social mobilization, campaigns, and knowledge-based advocacy. The campaign has two (2) major objectives; to come up with unified Philippine position on the international labour instrument for domestic workers during the International Labour Conference 2010 and the immediate passage of a national law for the sector.
