The Global Deal for Decent Work and Inclusive Growth Flagship Report 2018
The first Flagship Report of the “Global Deal for Decent Work and Inclusive Growth” contributes to the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The objective consists in developing and harnessing the potential of social dialogue and sound industrial relations as instruments for promoting decent work and job quality in line with Sustainable Development Goal 8 on Decent Work and Economic Growth, and thereby fostering greater equality and more Inclusive Growth in line with Sustainable Development Goal 10 on Reduced Inequalities.
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.
