The Fair Wage Network has been created on the initiative of Daniel Vaughan-Whitehead and Auret van Heerden. The Fair Wage approach was developed and explained in the book “Fair Wages” written by Daniel Vaughan-Whitehead.
The decision to set up the Fair Wage Network was taken on the occasion of the first Fair Wage conference, organized in Washington on October 26, 2009. The initiative was aimed at making wage practices progressing along global supply chains, by ensuring the coherence needed in the wage area and helping to liaise the proposed fair wage approach in relation to all wage initiatives at international and national level.
is to gradually move up individual companies’ wage practices, for their own employees or / and their suppliers, in terms of the different elements we believe should be part of the ‘fair wage’ approach. In order to succeed, this process requires a partnership with the companies to implement a step-by-step approach (from assessment to remediation and certification) furthermore a transparent and recognized methodology to avoid a possible initial reluctance from the different stakeholders. By creating this missing cooperative framework the Fair Wage Network represents a key step in incorporating wage issues in the quest for sustainable business.
