Statement from Baiada:
Like many businesses across Australia, Baiada uses contract labour for some of its operations. At all times we expect that those contractors will conduct their activities in accordance with the relevant legal and ethical standards, and in particular workplace laws or requirements. We were deeply concerned by the reports that came to light detailing workers poor treatment at the hands of some contractors.
Following a recent internal review, most of the measures that the FWO recommends in its Report are already in place, or are being initiated, across our business.
We have already responded to the Report’s authors in detail and look forward to meeting them to provide an accurate account of our company’s operations. We agree that it is very important to establish an on-going collaboration on this very important matter and we look forward to engaging with the FWO in the future.
