ILO defers global conference until 2021 over Covid-19

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) has deferred it’s 109th International Labour Conference to 2021 following the severe restrictions on travel and personal interaction implemented worldwide due to coronavirus disease.

According to a press release dated 06 April 2020 GENEVA, the Governing Body of the International Labour Organization said that it has deferred the upcoming session of the annual International Labour Conference  – originally scheduled for 25 May to 5 June in Geneva – due to the spread of COVID-19.

The International Labour Conference meets once a year in Geneva, Switzerland, to discuss key world of work issues, craft and adopt International Labour Standards and monitor their implementation.

It brings together government, worker and employer representatives of the ILO’s 187 member States.”
