International Labour Conference
(105th Session 30 May – 10 June 2016)
Membership of committees
Each year the ILO holds an International Labour Conference in the month of June, as per the
requirements of its Constitution. The Member States shall be represented by Government (2 delegates),
Workers (1 delegate) and Employers (1 delegate). Furthermore, the Worker delegate can be accompanied by
up to 2 advisers for each item on the agenda of the Conference and the Government should provide for travel
and subsistence expenses.
While the rule is that the most representative organization in the country should designate the delegate,
workers’ organizations are free to determine the composition of their own delegation. In case of trade union
pluralism in the country, unions can adopt – without governmental interference – any free rotation among
The Workers’ Group – following the indications of the ILO Constitution (art 3.2) - has requested
national delegations to ensure gender balance, having at least one woman in the delegation as per the target
set by the United Nations of increasing the participation of women in decision and policy-making bodies (at
least 50 per cent). Many workers’ delegations are below the threshold and every effort should be made to
redress this situation.
The Workers’ delegate and advisers have to be nominated in the credentials of member States, prior
to participate in the work of the technical committees of the Conference, as regular members or as deputy
members (deputy members can take part in a vote only to replace regular members who are absent at the
time of voting).
In case of standard setting discussions over two years (such as the case of the Revision of the
Employment Recommendation No. 71), workers’ organizations should strive to maintain the same person
covering the two sessions of the ILC.
In order to facilitate the preparatory steps to establish the composition of the Committees’
Workers’ Groups, trade unions are kindly asked to send preliminary information to the Bureau for
Workers’ Activities (ACTRAV), once tripartite consultations have taken place at national level.
Once the Worker Delegate from the country has been nominated - he/she should fill up the
enclosed form, in consultation with any other representative organizations and should submit it to
ACTRAV, in order to expedite preparations.
Please note that committee membership as indicated in the form will be effective only once:
 the Office has received official credentials from the government accrediting the person concerned as
Workers’ delegate, adviser, or person designated in accordance with article 2(3)(i) of the Standing Orders
of the Conference; and
 the registration request is endorsed by the Workers’ group and the initial committee composition approved
by the Conference.
Please return the registration form by 26 May 2016
to the Bureau for Workers’ Activities (ACTRAV)
