International Labour Standards - (adjective + noun)


A system of international conventions and recommendations drawn up by representatives of governments, employers and workers. The original international labour standards were created by the ILO, which was set up by the signatories to the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. Nowadays, the ECJ draws on a range of sources to protect labour standards, including international labour standards and Council of Europe measures.
