American labor has raised the nation’s standard of living.
Labor activism has brought us in closer alignment with our national ideals of economic and political #democracy.

Happy #LaborDay! Observed the first Monday in September, Labor Day is an annual celebration of the social and economic achievements of American workers. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, “the holiday is rooted in the late nineteenth century, when labor activists pushed for a federal holiday to recognize the many contributions workers have made to America’s strength, prosperity, and well-being.”

ILO Office for the United States

ILO is a specialized agency of the United Nations.

In 1920 the ILO established an office in Washington, one of the first four cities to have an ILO office along with Paris, London, and Rome. The ILO Office for the United States represents the ILO and ensures that its core priorities and interests, policies and experience are disseminated among key stakeholders.

Mission

The primary goal of the ILO today is to promote opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work, in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity. The mission of the ILO Office for the United States is to be a strong, visible, and proactive presence in the United States in order to effectively engage members of government, employers’ organizations, and workers’ groups and other international organizations in social dialogue and building partnerships for these purposes.
