UN labour agency to probe the future of work

22 Aug 17

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) has launched a commission to examine the future of work.

It will seek evidence on how to deliver sustainable work opportunities for all in a context of social justice.

ILO director general Guy Ryder said at the launch in Geneva yesterday: “It is fundamentally important that we confront these challenges from the conviction that the future of work is not decided for us in advance.

“It is a future that we must make according to the values and preferences that we choose and through policies that we design and implement.” 

The 20-strong Global Commission on the Future of Work will be co-chaired by Ameenah Gurib-Fakim, the president of Mauritius and Sweden's prime minister Stefan Lofven.

It will emphasise the relationship between work and society, the challenge of creating decent jobs for all, the organisation of work and production, and the governance of work.
