XXI Inter-American Conference of Ministers of Labor (IACML) of the OAS

XXI Inter-American Conference of Ministers of Labor

Place and Date: Buenos Aires, Argentina. September, 22-24, 2021

Building a more resilient world of work with sustainable development, dignified employment, and social inclusion

The theme of the XXI IACML will be: "Building a more resilient world of work with sustainable development, decent employment and social inclusion". The Ministers will discuss and propose hemispheric actions to address the devastating effects of COVID-19 on employment, build a new and better normal, and develop more resilient, just and equitable societies. Under this approach, they will discuss the future of work; the articulation between education and employment; the expansion of social protection; the centrality of social dialogue to overcome the crisis; and the strengthening of the Ministries of Labor to address emerging changes in the world of work, such as telework and the platform economy, among other issues of utmost relevance.

The meetings of the two IACML Consultative Bodies; the Trade Union Technical Advisory Council (COSATE), representing workers; and the Business Technical Advisory Committee on Labor Matters (CEATAL), representing employers; will also take place during these dates.
