Labour is not a commodity – Isabelle Schömann on Global Supply Chains
On 6 October ETUC Confederal Isabelle Schömann spoke about Global Supply Chains at an event organised by the German Presidency.
Isabelle Schömann stressed the ETUC’s call for a mandatory Human Rights, Due Diligence & Responsible Business Act at European level, which needs to ensure respect, compliance and enforcement of human rights. In this context, she reminded that “labour is not a commodity. The value of a worker in a contract chain cannot be less than the one of the consumer, the product itself or the investor."
