Commenting on the launch of the report: ‘Building Fair Work into the Construction Industry - Fair Work Convention Construction Inquiry Report 2022’, STUC General Secretary Roz Foyer said:
“The recommendations of the Fair Work Convention Construction Inquiry Report have come at a crucial time for the industry and can act as a road map for embedding fair work practices across the sector.
“The report makes clear the importance of collective bargaining and sectoral agreements in upholding a set of standards for employers to abide by, curtailing the pockets of exploitation that are still all too frequent across the industry.
“We now must see a firm commitment from the Scottish Government and industry partners to turn these recommendations into reality. As we transition to a net-zero economy, we need a thriving, supported and transformative construction sector, one that prioritises fair work and decency for its workers.
