In 2019, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) celebrates its 100th anniversary, under the theme “THE ILO CENTENARY: Advancing social justice, promoting decent work.”
The ILO was created in 1919, as part of the Treaty of Versailles that ended World War I, to reflect the belief that universal and lasting peace can be accomplished only if it is based on social justice.
The organisation has played a role at key historical junctures – the Great Depression, decolonisation, the creation of Solidarność in Poland, the victory over apartheid in South Africa – and today in the building of an ethical and productive framework for a fair globalisation.
Grenada has been a member of the International Labour Organisation since 1979.
According to Ratifications for Grenada on the ILO website, out of 34 Conventions ratified by Grenada, of which 23 are in force, 4 Conventions have been denounced; 5 instruments abrogated; 2 have been ratified in the past 12 months.
There are 60 Up-to-date Conventions and Protocols not ratified by Grenada.
