Global trade unions, represented by IndustriALL Global Union and Building and Wood Worker’s International (BWI), and representative of LafargeHolcim met on 23 January to launch the process of developing a global framework agreement.

“We strongly believe that people are core to the success of the company and out ambition is to create a workplace that is safe, diverse, inclusive and respectful,” said Caroline Luscombe, Head of Organisation and Human Resources at LafargeHolcim. “We want to build on our past track record of constructive and responsible social dialogue with the global unions through the development of a global framework agreement.”

As a result of the meeting, unions and LafargeHolcim agreed to begin work to draw up a global framework agreement that will cover fundamental rights, health and safety, exchange of information and solution of conflicts, and contractors management. A protocol is expected to be signed sometime this year.

“We welcome the results of the meeting and are ready to put our energy in developing a strong agreement for the wellbeing of workers of the company,” said Ambet Yuson, General Secretary of the BWI.
