Paper 5 – ILO Brown Report

The 99th Session of the International Labour Conference (ILC) was successfully held from 2 to 18 June 2010 in
Geneva, Switzerland. For domestic workers and advocates, it was a momentous and victorious event because ILO
Member States fi nally approved in principle to adopt a comprehensive standard for domestic workers in the form of
a Convention supplemented by a Recommendation. At the end of the Conference, it was resolved that an item entitled “Decent Work for Domestic Workers” shall be included in the agenda of its next ordinary session for second discussion in June 2011 where the fi nal decision will be made.

The ILC had a seven-point agenda divided into two categories: (1) standing items and (2) items placed on the agenda by the Conference or the Governing Body. The Decent Work for Domestic Workers (standard setting with a view to the possible adoption of a Convention supplemented by a Recommendation) was tabled under Item IV with the Committee on Domestic Work put in charge of the discussions.
