Organisations sign up to code
MORE than 150 organisations have adopted the Welsh Government’s code of practice aimed at ensuring better working conditions.
The Code of Practice on Ethical Employment in Supply Chains was first launched in March 2017. It asks organisations to commit to a series of actions which are designed to tackle illegal and unfair employment and working practices.
All organisations receiving Welsh Government funding, either directly or via grants or contracts, are expected to sign up to the code.
Economy Minister Ken Skates said: “We need to make Wales a more equal nation, where everyone has access to fair work that pays a living wage and where all workers can develop their skills and careers. This ambition is at the heart of our Economic Action Plan, and it is why we developed our economic contract. This makes it very clear that businesses must demonstrate their commitment to fair work if they want to access Welsh Government funding.”
