About the Association of Labor Providers (ALP)
Established in 2004 at the instigation of the UK government, ALP is a specialist trade association promoting responsible recruitment and good practice for organisations that supply the workforce to the food processing, agricultural, and wider consumer goods supply chain.
The ALP influences government and regulatory policy and provides a range of very useful information and services to its members.
The ALP’s mission is for “UK labor provision to be recognized as a model of global good practice” achieved through six policy focus areas:
Policy Focus Areas:
- Supply Chain Partner – Driving awareness of the crucial role labor providers undertake in supply chains through the sourcing and supply of a high calibre future workforce.
- Access to Labor – Promoting national policy actions and developing industry capability to maintain ongoing access to an adequate labor supply of all skill levels.
- Fair Charge Rates – Promoting payment of fair charge rates to labor providers that enable business sustainability and do not foster worker exploitation or tax evasion.
- Fair to Workers – Supporting labor providers to meet legal and ethical responsibilities and to treat workers fairly and with respect.
- Fair Competition – Support for clear and proportionate regulation of labor provision that facilitates fair competition.
- Responsible Recruitment – Leading a stakeholder partnership approach to drive continuous improvement in responsible recruitment standards applied by labor providers.
The ALP is governed by a Members’ Council of labor providers with an independent Chairman and Chief Executive and supported by the following team. Meridian's CEO Derek Skelton is a member of the council.
The Association of Labor Providers (ALP) is the specialist trade association promoting responsible recruitment for labor providers. ALP represents and supports its members to ensure that the provision, use, and management of labor in our sectors is recognized as a model of good practice.
