The workers' group at the International Labour Organisation (ILO) has called for a proposal for the new ILO standard (convention accompanied by a recommendation) on gender-based violence at work. The ILO Governing Body at its session in November 2015 will take a decision on whether to place this item on the agenda of the International Labour Conference (ILO supreme decision making and standard setting body) for the years 2017-2018. In this context, the EESC Opinion would represent a contribution of the European civil society, including workers' representatives, to the ILO discussion on the need for a new labour standard. In the past, the EESC contributed with its Opinions to the ILO discussions on new standards on domestic workers and prohibition of forced labour.
