The International Trade Union Confederation has just published the following new publications on domestic workers in advance of this years discussion on a new ILO Convention :

1) The ITUC action guide : Decent work, decent life for domestic workers - provides background information on domestic work and offers tools, practical examples and tips to advocate for domestic workers' rights and to organise them in trade unions.

2) The ITUC-IUF-ETUC flyer - contains trade union demands on domestic workers rights.

Congress has earlier written to Minister Dara Callery, TD, in advance of the second ILO discussion on "Decent Work for Domestic Workers" due to be held in June 2011, making the case for strong support from Ireland for the adoption of a comprehensive international instrument to ensure decent work for domestic workers.
