The ILO Convention 177 on Homework (C177) was adopted at the International Labour Conference (ILC) on 20 June 1996. Organized homeworkers were campaigning to be recognized as workers with rights equal to those of other wage earners. It was the first time in the ILO’s history that a group composed mainly of women workers in the informal economy was covered by an ILO Convention.
