Italy -Domestic workers convention ratified -January 22, 2013

The Domestic Workers Convention, 2011 (No. 189) seeks to improve the working and living conditions of tens of millions of domestic workers worldwide. Italy is the 4th ILO member State and the first EU member State to ratify this instrument. The country is among the three biggest employers of domestic workers within Europe with women accounting for 88% of the total number of workers. With the prompt ratification the country’s strong commitment to ILO’s principles and values, namely to the core concept of decent work is demonstrated according to an Italian official.
