Maternity Convention ratified by Benin

IUF affiliates in Benin have not missed one opportunity to push for the ratification of the ILO Convention 183 on Maternity protection. They are therefore very happy to announce that their efforts have been successful: on January 10, 2012, Benin became the 23rd country to ratify this important convention.
The IUF national women’s coordination committees in other African countries are continuing their struggle to get their respective governments to take the same move.
