Worker engagement

Purpose

ASC recognises the importance of having workers engaged in decision-making processes that relate to their own wellbeing and workplace. This has several dimensions:  

  1. Making employees aware of their rights and build their capacity to defend them where needed 
  2. The freedom for employees to join trade unions or informal associations to bargain collectively about their working conditions 
  3. Mechanisms at farms and feed mills through which employees can speak up about grievances or when change is necessary 
  4. External grievance mechanisms that are independent of the farm or feed mill 
  5. Opportunities for aquaculture workers to influence ASC’s standard setting processes and programme development 

ASC is at an early stage in this process and is actively looking to collaborate with workers’ organisations and human rights organisations and other NGOs on this topic.
