Scandia Steel to Review Business Ties with Belarusian Steel Works
BelSat reported that in a response letter from the Professional Union of Belarusians in the UK PUBB, Scandia Steel said that “We take all allegations of human rights violations seriously, whether concerning our own operations or our business relationships. We share your caution about worker relations. The board of directors considered the matter and decided to phase out BSW as a supplier and suspend future product orders.”
Non governmental organizations and the Belarusian diaspora have appealed to Belarusian Steel Works customers, including Scandia Steel Baltic, part of the Swedish company Scandia Steel, about violations of workers’ rights at its supplier and compliance with their ethical rules.
Scandia Steel is a leading supplier of steel piling piles to the Scandinavian & Balkan markets
