The Stop-G4S campaign will be gathering signature for the Stop G4S Petition to Manchester City Council (detail below) outside the library in Chorlton on Saturday 14th March between 11:00-13:00.
Details of the G4S Petition
“G4S is a security company alleged to be involved in human rights abuses. We call upon the Council to introduce an ethical commissioning and procurement policy which provides guidance on the exercise of discretion to exclude tenderers on the grounds of grave misconduct including human rights abuses, anti trade union practices, tax avoidance and fraud.
Any supplier which has committed a breach of the ethical policy should be considered to have committed an act of grave misconduct in the course of its business and should be excluded from tendering unless and until it can demonstrate that it has taken appropriate remedial steps. Any exclusion must be appropriate to the scale and nature of the offence or misconduct.”
