Two years ago, on June 21, 2019, the entire world made an important history for the ratification of the ILO Convention No.190 on the Elimination of Violence and Harassment in the World of Work at the International Labor Conference (ILC) which took place in Geneva, Switzerland.
The government, employers' organizations and Indonesian trade unions in the forum agreed to support the ratification of the ILO Convention and Recommendation 206 on the Elimination of Violence and Harassment in the World of Work in UN member countries.
In Indonesia, the Alliance to Stop Harassment and Violence in the World of Work, an alliance consisting of trade unions and a number of organizations, has advocated the Convention since 2017. The Alliance to Stop Harassment and Violence in the World of Work has carried out a number of activities and advocacy for the ratification of this convention. A number of activities that had been conducted during the period of 2019-2020 included taking an inventory of violence and harassment issues, conducting socialization through mass media, conducting meetings with policy makers and preparing an academic paper on the ILO Convention No.190.
