10–21 June 2019

Plenary sittings of the 108th Session of the International Labour Conference

General information


The Conference plenary is composed of four delegates from each national delegation, two representing governments, one the employers and one the workers. During the 108th (Centenary) Session, the Plenary will meet during the whole duration of the Conference, from Monday 10 June to Friday 21 June, except on Saturday 15 June.

All plenary sittings will take place in the Assembly Hall of the Palais des Nations and will consist of the following phases:
  • the Conference opening sitting;
  • a high-level section to receive the visits of heads of State and Government;
  • the discussion of the Report of the Director-General and the report of the Chairperson of the Governing Body;
  • the adoption of standing and technical committee reports; and
  • the Conference closing sitting.
Due to the number of participants expected during the Centenary Session of the Conference and to enhanced security measures linked to the visits of heads of State and Government, access to the Conference opening sitting and most high level sittings of the Plenary will be restricted to a limited number of members from each national delegation and from each invited observer delegation. Special badges will be distributed to this end. The seating plan in the Assembly Hall will be announced in due course in this webpage as well as in the ILO Events App, and displayed outside the Assembly Hall. It might be subject to change between high-level and other plenary sittings.
