St. Maarten – Vice President Claire Elshot of the Windward Islands Chamber of Labor Unions will leave this Sunday for Switzerland to attend the 102nd congress of the International Labor Organization ILO.
The congress-theme is: Building a future with decent work. Employment and social protection, sustainable development and green jobs, and the strategic objective of social dialogue will be on the agenda in Switzerland.
“Social dialogue should empower social partners to discuss matters – to agree to disagree,” Elshot said yesterday. “I hope the outcome of the congress will also be used in St. Maarten.”
Elshot travels as part of a three-partite delegation with a representative of government and of employers to the congress.
