In this resolution, the ITUC-AP Conference recognises that decent work is the battle cry of trade unions in efforts to improve the lives of workers and society. It asserts that decent work can only be achieved when work is carried out in conditions of freedom, equity, security, and human dignity.
The Conference commits the ITUC-AP to: commence preparations for campaigns on better working conditions and wages; work with affiliates to eliminate discrimination in working conditions in light of ILO Convention No. 100; continue to campaign for introduction of a guaranteed minimum wage and for ratification of ILO Conventions No. 131, 95, and 94; work with the ILO to produce data and research with the aim to develop the concept of a living wage; and assist affiliates in working towards a strong system of labour inspection, enforcement in their respective countries and intensify labour inspection in precarious work.
