GREENVALE AP, the Fenland supplier of fresh potatoes, has joined the Association of Labour Providers (ALP), the trade association for organisations that provide and use temporary, contract and seasonal workers.

The move comes at a time when the ALP has launched its Gangmaster Audit Tool software program, which allows organisations employing seasonal workers to objectively audit the companies providing the labour.

"We rely on temporary labour and have been considering joining the ALP for some time," says Andy Ferguson, Greenvale's Group HR and Health & Safety Manager.

"The relationship will help us follow best practice in an area that is full of conflicting advice and regulations, not to mention highly complex legislation. Not only can the ALP provide us with expert assistance, they can also speak on our behalf directly to government and the regulators."
