Geneva, 28 giugno 1939


The General Conference of the International Labour Organisation,

Having been convened at Geneva by the Governing Body of the International Labour Office, and having met in its Twenty-fifth Session on 8 June 1939, and
Having decided upon the adoption of certain proposals with regard to the regulation of night work in road transport, which is included in the fourth item on the agenda of the Session, and
Having determined that these proposals shall take the form of a Recommendation,
adopts this twenty-eight day of June of the year one thousand nine hundred and thirty-nine, the following Recommendation, which may be cited as the Night Work (Road Transport) Recommendation, 1939:
Whereas in certain classes of road transport for the conveyance of passengers or goods it is necessary to operate at night;
Whereas in order to afford road transport workers the necessary protection under labour regulations and in order to ensure safety on the road, it is desirable to regulate the conditions under which transport at night is carried on;
The Conference recommends every Member of the International Labour Organisation to apply the following principles concerning the regulation of night work for travelling staff engaged in road transport:

1. The competent authority in each country should--
(a) determine the classes of transport for which it authorises night work to be regularly worked; and
(b) define what constitutes night work.
2. When night work is organised on a rota system, the number of turns of night work worked by any worker during any rotation period should not exceed the number of turns of day work worked during the same period.


The General Conference of the International Labour Organization, Having been convened in Geneva by the Governing Body of the International Labour Office, and having met in its 90th Session on 3 June 2002, and Following consideration of the proposal for the withdrawal of several international labour Recommendations, which is the seventh item on the agenda of this session, decides this day of June of the year two thousand and two to withdraw the Night Work (Road Transport) Recommendation, 1939 (No. 64). The Director-General of the International Labour Office shall notify all Members of the International Labour Organization, as well as the Secretary-General of the United Nations, of this decision to withdraw the instrument. The English and French versions of the text of this decision are equally authoritative.
