File PDF document Wal-Mart's Sweatshop Monitoring Fails to Catch Violations: The Story of Toys Made in China for Wal-Mart
by Paul Roeland last modified 24-04-2013 18:57 — filed under: , ,
Field research by Students and Scholars against Corporate Misbehavior (SACOM) conducted in 2007 shows that Wal-Mart consistently fails to catch and stop serious labor violations in its Chinese supplier factories. Indeed, the working conditions in Wal-Mart’s Chinese supplier factories are increasingly falling below the International Labor Organization’s defined minimum standard for socially acceptable work. Interviews conducted between June 2005 and December 2006 with eighty-two workers at five Wal-Mart toy supplier factories in the industrial zones of Shenzhen and Zhuhai in Guangdong province uncovered widespread illegal and unethical labor practices that previously eluded Wal-Mart auditors.

EU should use review to push for workers' rights and freedom of association in Bangladesh
by Christie Miedema published 17-05-2017 last modified 17-05-2017 07:16 — filed under: , , , , ,
Tomorrow, 18 May, the third annual review of the so-called "Sustainability Compact" between Bangladesh, the European Union and the International Labour Organization takes place in Dhaka. Despite optimism voiced by the EU, Bangladesh is still far from meeting its international labour rights' commitments and taking concrete steps enshrined under the Compact. A striking example is the wave of repression which the the Bangladeshi labour movement has faced since December 2016. Clean Clothes Campaign calls upon the EU, as well as brands, national governments and other stakeholders, to maintain pressure on the Bangladeshi government to improve labour conditions and comply with the Compact's demands.

The Accord, established four years ago to improve structural, electrical and fire safety in Bangladesh's garment factories, entered its final year last month and is currently in the process of being renegotiated.
