The International Labour Organization (ILO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations that deals with labour issues pertaining to international labor standards. Its headquarters are in Geneva, Switzerland. Its secretariat — the people who are employed by it throughout the world — is known as the International Labour Office. The organization received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1969.[1] Membership and organization Members include states that were members on 1 November 1945, when the organization’s new constitution came into effect after World War II. In addition, any original member of the United Nations and any state admitted to the U.N. thereafter may join. Other states can be admitted by a two-thirds vote of all delegates, including a two-thirds vote of government delegates, at any ILO General Conference.[2]
