Global unions demand social dialogue with LafargeHolcim

07.04.2016

IndustriALL Global Union is teaming up with sister organizations, the Building and Wood Workers International (BWI) and the European Federation of Building and Woodworkers (EFBWW), to launch an online petition calling on LafargeHolcim to respect workers’ rights and improve health and safety jointly with the trade unions .

Some 70 workers die each year toiling for LafargeHolcim, 90 per cent of whom are employed indirectly. Unions want the cement giant to sign a global framework agreement before the end of the year help to improve workers’ rights and health and safety across the globe.

The agreement would have to cover all direct and indirect workers at all the company’s worksites worldwide and provide for fundamental international labour standards to be respected.

Unions are also demanding a global joint union-management body (such as a world union committee or world works council) to ensure fruitful social dialogue at a global level.

Take action and sign petition with workers’ demands, which will be delivered to LafargeHolcim management.

LafargeHolcim, respect workers’ rights!
