Global Company–Trade Union Agreements: A proxy for regulatory compliance & due diligence

Join IndustriALL Global Union and LAPFF for a webinar to discuss a new investor brief on Global Company–Trade Union Agreements. Learning lessons from the failures of “social auditing” and factory certification schemes, this newer model is centered on workers’ rights and company accountability for violations of these rights. Negotiated, binding agreements can also serve as a reliable proxy for investors for regulatory compliance as mandatory human rights due diligence (mHRDD) laws emerge. Speakers will include Due Diligence Design, Aviva Investors, IndustriALL Global Union and Bangladesh Garment & Industrial Workers Federation (BGIWF). The event will be chaired by LAPFF Vice-Chair, Cllr John Gray.
