GLP Report

Good Labour Practices Programme Report

The EU-funded Ship to Shore Rights Project is charged with a revision and expansion of the 2012 Good Labour Practices Programme (GLP) which taught workplace labour standards in the Thai shrimp-peeling industry. A revised programme must respond to the urgent changes in the Thai and global seafood industries in the last few years.

In the short years since the design of the GLP shrimp programme, the talk of global labour standards in seafood has shifted. Instead of soft-focus discussions of ethical sourcing strategy, parties now have harder-edged discussions about keeping major-market access and complying with criminal codes.
