What is a Global Framework Agreement?

Read this article in:

6 March, 2017Tomorrow, IndustriALL Global Union will renew its global framework agreement with the PSA Group; the first one was signed in 2006 and has a clear commitment to international core labour standards. 

Global Framework Agreements (GFAs) serve to protect the interests of workers across a multinational company’s operations.

Global Framework Agreements are negotiated on a global level between trade unions and a multinational company. They put in place the very best standards of trade union rights, health, safety and environmental practices, and quality of work principles across a company's global operations, regardless of whether those standards exist in an individual country.

IndustriALL prioritizes establishing, monitoring and improving GFAs with multinational companies.
