Speaker, I move without notice:
That the House -
1) notes that the Wine, and agricultural, Industry Ethical Trade Association (WIETA), a South African non-profit organisation that actively promotes ethical trade in the wine industry amongst stakeholders such as producers, retailers, trade unions and the government, will this month introduce a world-first ethical seal to be placed on qualifying wines in order to acknowledge their commitment towards certified fair labour practices;
2) acknowledges that this new seal will testify that producers have adhered to the organisation's code, which is based on the International Labour Convention's Ethical Trading Initiative and South African labour legislation;
3) recognises that this code does not only prohibit the use of child labour, but upholds that workers should have the right to freedom of association, a living wage and be protected from unfair discrimination whilst securing housing and tenure rights;
4) acknowledges that the ultimate long-term vision of this initiative is to have one seal, issued by the Wine and Spirit Board, that certifies the wine of origin information, the environmental sustainability, and the ethical treatment of workers; and
5) congratulates the Wine and Agricultural Industry Ethical Trade Association on this initiative and their commitment towards fair trade practices within the South African labour market.
