In August 2017, WIEGO joined the Global Deal partnership. Other international organizations and NGOs are also part of the institution, such as Oxfam, ILO, OECD, and Fairtrade International, as well as several major labour unions, business organizations, and member-states governments.
The Global Deal is a multi-stakeholder partnership with the objective of jointly addressing the challenges in the global labour market and enabling all people to benefit from globalization. The Global Deal aims to encourage governments, businesses, unions, and other organizations to make commitments to enhance social dialogue.
