REPORT LAUNCH: Shared Prosperity: The Investor Case for Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining
The rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining are fundamental human rights. Around the world, employers compromise these rights by taking measures to prevent, prohibit or interfere with workers’ efforts to join a union and negotiate the terms and conditions of their employment. Such labour rights violations present material risks for investors. Simultaneously, there is a strong business case for respecting fundamental labour rights.

This session will begin with a presentation of the CWC report, describing the value created when workers exercise their labour rights, including improved corporate human rights due diligence, positive contributions to corporate performance in areas such as health and safety, retention, productivity, and diversity, equity, and inclusion, and the mitigation of systemic risks associated with inequality and weak economic growth. Then, a frontline worker will share their experience, illuminating the impact of worker organization on employees and firms. Next, a company representative will provide an issuer’s perspective on how their company respects and implements labour rights. Finally, an investor will offer an asset owner view of their engagements with portfolio companies on labour rights. Attendees will come away with both the foundation and tools for engaging portfolio companies regarding the rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining.
