GENEVA (ILO News) – Among the items on the agenda are the possible amendment of the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, 1998, to include safe and healthy working conditions.

An initial discussion on apprenticeships will take place, with a view to the possible creation of a new international labour standard.

Committees will also discuss decent work and the social and solidarity economy, and the strategic objective of employment as part of the follow-up mechanism of the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization.

The Committee for the Application of Standards will discuss 22 country cases.

Journalists wanting access to the committees should send a request to communication@ilo.org. The request will then be sent to the committee Chair for their approval. Filming or photography will not be possible in the Committee for the Application of Standards.
