Guy Ryder reelected for a second term as head of UN labour

Speaking after his re-election, Mr. Ryder told ILO News: “I thank the Governing Body members for their renewed confidence. My second term will start as the world of work is undergoing unprecedented and transformative change. One asset that we have to master this change is our unique tripartite structure: government, employer and worker representatives will play a key role in shaping the future of work and reasserting social justice as the pole star of international policy making.” He also stressed that “the denial of social justice on a deeply disturbing scale constituted a real threat to stability and eventually peace in our societies,” and encouraged the ILO members to work hard, and be proactive in delivering the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
