Domestic workers have been organizing to win increased protections at the state, federal, and international levels for generations. International Domestic Workers Day marks the anniversary of the 2011 passage of the International Labor Organization (ILO) Convention 189 for Decent Work for Domestic Workers, establishing international labor law for domestic workers. Since its passage, domestic workers have used this day to honor the vibrancy of the leadership of domestic workers in the fight for better protections across the world, including across the United States. NDWA is proud to stand in solidarity with workers who make all other work possible in the U.S. and around the world and to be a part of the global domestic workers movement.
