What is international Domestic Workers day?


IDWD, June 16, celebrates the 2011 passage of the International Labor Organization Convention 189 for Decent Work for Domestic Workers. Domestic workers from around the world came together to fight to establish this international law for domestic workers.  

The landslide victory represented an historic step forward towards domestic work being recognised as work like any other, and establishing fundamental labor protections.
