Texts of the Convention and the Recommendation: 100th Session of the International Labour Conference held in Geneva on 1-17 June 2011.

Convention on Domestic workers 2011

adopted the Convention on Domestic Workers (2011) by a vote of 396 to 16, with 63 abstentions and the accompanying Recommendation by a vote of 434 to 8, with 42 abstentions. The ILO is the only tripartite organization of the UN, and each of its 183 Member States is represented by two government delegates, and one employer and one worker delegate, with an independent vote.Sadly the Thai government abstained from the vote on the Convention but voted in favour of the Recommendation which is not legally binding.
