Inclusive Labour Markets, Labour Relations and Working Conditions Branch (INWORK)

INWORK provides technical assistance to ILO constituents and expands the knowledge base on Wages, Working Time, Working Conditions, Collective Bargaining and Labour Relations, and Job and Labour Market Security. The Branch’s work covers the interplay among these key labour market institutions and their combined effect on worker protection, labour market performance and equality. In addition, INWORK coordinates the ILO Strategy to Make Decent Work a Reality for Domestic Workers.
