LABOUR 20 (L20) Australia 2014 [December 2013]
The Labour 20 – L20 represents the interests of workers at the G20 level. It unites trade unions from G20 countries and Global Unions and is convened by the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and Trade Union Advisory Committee (TUAC) to the OECD.
Since the outbreak of the financial crisis in 2008, the L20 engages around the G20 inter-governmental process to ensure inclusive and constructive dialogue on ‘Jobs and Growth’ as one of the official outreach groups together with the Business 20 (B20), Civil 20 and Youth 20.
The L20 conveys key messages of the global labour movement at consultations with the Employment Task Force and Sherpa meetings, Labour and Finance Ministers meetings and G20 Summits. Joint consultations of social partners with Leaders as well as Finance and Labour Ministers are an integral part of the G20 process.
Members of the L20 formulate key messages in a broad consultative process and confirm policy goals at the L20 Summit for each G20 presidency. The L20 has consistently pressed:
to generate investment to create quality jobs;
to scale up quality apprenticeships and skills;
to ensure the formalisation of work through minimum wages, labour rights and social protection floors;
to achieve sustainable, green and inclusive growth;
to ensure fair income distribution;
to re-regulate the financial sector;
and to follow-up on the implementation of G20 past and future commitments.
