The ALP’s aim is for The provision of temporary labour to the UK food and agricultural sectors to be recognised as a model of good practice.”

This will be achieved through:

  • Raising Standards – Promoting a stakeholder partnership approach to continuously improve standards of labour provision and to raise labour standards beyond base compliance.
  • Promoting Growth – Raising awareness of labour providers’ contribution to supply chain efficiency through effective sourcing and supply of the workforce to plant, pick and produce our food.
  • Responsibility to workers – Supporting labour providers and users to meet their legal and ethical responsibilities to the contingent workforce and to treat temporary and seasonal workers fairly and with respect.
  • Sustainable Supply – Facilitating the definition and application of fair pay and charge rates that enable business sustainability and do not foster worker exploitation and tax evasion.
  • Proportionate Regulation – Advocating proportionate regulation of  labour provision that facilitates fair competition.
  • Sector Support – Championing work and careers in UK agriculture and food production.
