International Labour Organization

The only tripartite United Nations organization, since 1919, has brought together governments, employers and workers from 187 ILO member countries to set labor standards, develop policies and programs to promote good work for all women and all men. The ILO’s unique tripartite structure gives employees, employers and governments an equal voice to ensure that the views of the social partners are closely reflected in the formulation of labor standards, policies and programs. The main objectives of the ILO are to promote labor rights, encourage good employment opportunities, strengthen social security and strengthen dialogue on labor issues.
