Local Labour Charter
The Local Labour Charter was established by the Docklands Authority to ensure that local people get their fair share of employment from the many construction projects in the area.
The Charter specifically seeks to help the local community by reducing the number of unemployed people in the Docklands area.
How it Works
Since the establishment of the Local Labour Charter, 20% of all construction jobs on projects undertaken within the Docklands Authority’s remit have to be filled by local people.
The Right Result
The Docklands Local Labour Charter has been successful in providing many construction jobs for local people. On the second phase of the IFSC development, for example, 120 local people were employed and 90% of these had been on the Long Term Unemployment Register.
More recent local labour programmes include the Spencer Dock and Grand Canal Harbour developments where the same 20% stipulation applies.
