Alko deepens cooperation in the international organization field

Alko is taking part in negotiations that are on the homestretch to begin the cooperation together with International Union of Food, Agricultural, Restaurant Catering, Tobacco and Allied Workers (IUF) and Finnish Service Union United PAM. 

The contract will be released in the end of January 2020. The aim of the cooperation is to promote human rights, labor rights and good working conditions in the supply chain of alcoholic beverages and ensure that any deficiencies are found and resolved. The parties of the agreement share the concern how worker’s rights are implemented specially in primary production of agricultural raw material. Along the cooperation an international level complaints mechanism is introduced, and the operation is based on clear roles and responsibilities through the supply chain. Open and active stakeholder cooperation is the relevant part of Alko’s strategy. The responsible person in Alko is Sustainability Manager Marja Aho.
