The object of the organization, comprising as we have seen
a full Conference, a selected Governing Body, and an adminis- trative Bureau, may be briefly summarized as the creation of effective international collaboration in all spheres of indus- try, particularly as regards the regulation of work hours, the distribution of information with regard to unemployment and immigration, health, economics, finance, and cognate matters. What records have we of successes in these fields ? During the eight years which the I.L.O. has been in existence there have been ten Conferences and thirty-six meetings of the Gov- erning Body. During all these years of peculiar economic difficulty, during which industrial relations have been inevit- ably strained and frequently broken, the contact and col- laboration of organized workers and organized employers have continued without a break.
