International Domestic Workers Federation
We are a membership-based global organization of domestic and household workers. A domestic or household worker is any person engaged in domestic work within an employment relationship. We believe domestic work is work and all domestic and household workers deserve to enjoy the same rights as all other workers.

Our objective is to build a strong, democratic and united domestic/household workers global organization to protect and advance domestic workers’ rights everywhere.

As of April 2018, the IDWF has 67 affiliates from 54 countries, representing over 600,000 domestic/household workers’ members. Most are organized in trade unions and others, in associations, networks and workers’ cooperatives.
