The ILO is a UN agency that promotes social justice and internationally recognized human and labor rights. Established in 1919, it is the only surviving major creation of the Treaty of Versailles. The ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work covers four areas:
- Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining
- The elimination of forced and compulsory labor
- The abolition of child labor
- The elimination of discrimination in the workplace
