Two day Labour20 (L20) engagement group’s inception meet, as part of India’s G20 presidency, began yesterday in Amritsar, Punjab on key issues concerning the global workforce to provide direction to the G20 nations and institutions to focus on development reaching the last person.
Trade union leaders, labour studies experts and delegates from 20 nations at the Labour20 inception meeting under India’s G20 presidency are preparing to call for the universalisation of social security and to put women at the centre of future of work.
The L20 meet will conclude today with a joint statement on the Universalisation of Social Security and Women and the Future of Work, both subjects being debated in detail at the event, said BMS former National President C. K. Saji Narayanan. He said, the economic crisis adversely impacts women the most, and hence the future of work depends majorly on the women's workforce, which needs direction globally.
Later in the evening, Bhupendra Yadav, Union Minister of Labour and Employment addressed the delegates virtually. He highlighted the G20 theme #OneEarth #OneFamily #OneFuture and how the concept is relevant to the labour movements globally. (AIR NEWS)
