In view of the COVID-19 situation and following the safety and health risk assessment undertaken by the Office for the Governing Body, all group meetings and plenary sittings of the 340th Session were held through the Zoom platform.
The 338th Session, originally scheduled for 12-26 March, did not take place in view of the restrictions to meetings and travel in place since early March as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The 338th bis and the 339th Sessions, originally scheduled on Monday 25 May and Saturday 6 June 2020, respectively, were cancelled by the Governing Body when it decided by correspondence, on 3 April 2020, to defer to 2021 the 109th Session of the International Labour Conference in the context of travel and meeting restrictions imposed during the coronavirus pandemic.
