Labour agreement, 1944

New Zealand Prime Minister Walter Nash (seated, centre) talks with United States president Franklin D. Roosevelt (left) while the director of the International Labour Organization (ILO), Edward J. Phelan, signs the Declaration of Philidelphia. The declaration set out the aims and purpose of the ILO, and opens with the principles on which the organisation is based – including that labour is not a commodity, that freedom of expression and of association are essential to sustained progress, and that poverty anywhere constitutes a danger to prosperity everywhere.
