HUMAN RIGHTS - FOCUS ON GRIEVANCE MECHANISMS AND FORCED LABOUR

December 19, 02:11 PM

Having provided material and training to members on how to implement and report on the UN Guiding Principles on business & human rights, addressing worker grievances and eradicating forced labour has now moved to the forefront of the AIM-PROGRESS Human Rights work stream’s activity.

 

While on grievance mechanisms AIM-PROGRESS will focus on learning from existing sector and company initiatives, including worker voice organisations, our activity on forced labour will be to support implementation of the CGF forced labour resolutions, in particular the three commitments that 1) no worker should pay for a job; 2) every worker should have freedom of movement; 3) no worker should be indebted or coerced to work. AIM-PROGRESS is also engaging with Sedex to ensure that the SMETA protocol update will include these new elements of compliance.
