The very first Global Deal Flagship Report “Building trust in a changing world of work” is being launched today at the OECD in Paris, with participation from H.E. Margot Wallström, Minister for Foreign Affairs in Sweden, H.E. Muriel Pénicaud, Minister of Labour in France, Angel Gurría, Secretary-General at the OECD, Moussa Oumarou, Deputy Director-General for Field Operations & Partnerships at the ILO, Sharan Burrow, General Secretary at ITUC and Senior Advisor to the Global Deal, and Facundo Etchebehere, Global Public Affairs Director and Head of Corporate Affairs for Essential Dairy and Plant Based at Danone.
The report stresses the critical role of social dialogue in creating decent work and inclusive growth, but that new efforts are needed to ensure the recognition and realisation of the rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining. The report also highlights the crucial role of social dialogue in enhancing the inclusiveness of labour protection and the important role played by social partners in shaping the future of work, through workplace cooperation, collective bargaining and tripartite social dialogue.
The report is co-written by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the International Labour Organization (ILO), and coordinated by the Global Deal Support Unit located in the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Senior Advisors of the Global Deal have reviewed the report and contributed with valuable input.
