And I want to use this occasion to remind that the future of the world of work and the question of the social justice require a strong international cooperation. There is no alternative to a strong international cooperation.”

STORYLINE:

“The future of work will be the result of our decisions, our choices, our capacity to follow-up on them, our willingness to cooperate together to make the future of work the one that we want,” Guy Ryder, the Director-General of the International Labour Organization (ILO) said today at the opening of the ILO’s annual International Labour Conference in Geneva.

In its Centenary year, the ILO’s annual International Labour Conference got under way in Geneva today attended by representatives of government, workers and employers from the ILO’s 187-member States.

Opening the conference, ILO Director-General Guy Ryder said to gathered attendees “you are here because you share the vision and confidence of Albert Thomas and the conviction that it is within our grasp to generate the conditions for decent work for all, in which enterprises prosper, people succeed, and societies progress, one which assures the continuity of the 100 years old vision of the founders of the International Labour Organization and the aspirations of the citizens of the future through the constant advancement of decent work, social justice and peace.”

“The future of work,” said Director-General, “is not pre-determined. It will not be decided for us, not by robots, not by artificial intelligence.”

Ryder said, “the fact is that the future of work will be the result of our decisions, our choices, our capacity to follow-up on them, our willingness to cooperate together to make the future of work the one that we want.”

Switzerland’s Federal Councillor and Head of the Federal Department of Home Affairs, Alain Berset, also addressed conference delegates and underlined the importance of effective international cooperation.

He said “we know that the great inequalities in condition of work still persist today. More than ever, in this digital age and the globalized economy we need common standards to ensure a fair competition between countries. And that is one of the elements that makes the International Labour Organization very important. And it is a responsibility of all of us, in the frame of the ILO, to elaborate, approve and implement those common standards. And I want to use this occasion to remind that the future of the world of work and the question of the social justice require a strong international cooperation. There is no alternative to a strong international cooperation.”

In the coming days more than 40 heads of state will address the 108th International Labour Conference, also known as the world’s parliament of labour.
