Sixty-one countries have ratified ILO Conventions or Protocols since the beginning of 2018, following a call for every member State to ratify at least one international labour standard to mark the ILO Centenary. It means almost a third of ILO member States have heeded

the call, amplified by the ‘One for All’ Centenary Ratification Campaign  at the beginning of 2019. 
“We have been very encouraged by the response of countries to the Centenary Ratification Campaign,” said Corinne Vargha, Director of the ILO’s International Labour Standards Department. “We sometimes take for granted the eight-hour working day, paid maternity leave or minimum wages but these are institutions rooted in our international standards. The 
ratifications  coming in suggest these institutions add real value to our lives and that of future generations, but also that there is still room to do better.”
International Labour Standards  are at the core of the ILO’s work. Since its founding in 1919, 190 Conventions and 206 Recommendations  have been adopted by the International Labour Conference  (ILC), on issues as varied as child labour, working time and the rights of seafarers. The latest are the landmark Convention and Recommendation on Violence and Harassment in the workplace , which were adopted at the Centenary ILC in June 2019. 

While these international labour standards have improved the working lives of millions of people, many issues in the world of work remain. New forces are also transforming the workplace, including technological development, climate change, demographic shifts and globalization, making international labour standards as relevant as ever. 
“The setting, ratification and supervision of international labour standards are the central instruments of the ILO’s pursuit of social justice. They remain key as we work together today to fulfill the commitment to sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all, as outlined in the 
UN 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda ,” said Beate Andrees, Chief of the ILO’s Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work branch. 
Since the launch of the campaign at the start of the ILO’s Centenary year, 50 
new ratifications  have been registered and 44 ‘instruments’ have entered into force, after being ratified last year.
