JHL's Santamäki-Vuori:
Service purchases must have quality criteria for working conditions


JHL (01.09.2010 - Juhani Artto) Public sector organizations must demand that the services they purchase from private organizations are produced and operate under decent working conditions. It is as important as the quality of the services themselves, said Tuire Santamäki-Vuori on Tuesday. She is the President of the Trade Union for the Public and Welfare Sectors JHL.

The legislation allows for the use of social criteria in public service
purchases, she reminds. "But municipalities have forgotten this opportunity when tendering and purchasing services.
"

Santamäki-Vuori was keen to stress the fact that public services are financed from common tax resources. And therefore, this money should not be spent buying services that are only competitive because they offer less quality to citizens who avail of them and less income to the employees who produce them.
"Any attempt to employ or add to poorer working conditions must of necessity be ruled out at the tendering stage."
