  • Title: Protecting Workers' Rights Worldwide | Fair Labor Association
    Descriptive info: Protecting Workers Rights Worldwide.. From coffee and electronics to apparel and footwear, most of the products we enjoy and use every day are made by men and women in factories and on farms around the world.. These workers harvest the cotton used to make our shirts, sew buttons and zippers onto our jackets, grow the cocoa our children drink, and make high-tech soles for our running shoes.. Unfortunately, many of them work in deplorable conditions.. FLA's Multi-Stakeholder Approach to Improving Workers' Lives.. The products we buy  ...   be produced fairly and ethically, and brings together three key constituencies - universities, civil society organizations (CSOs) and companies - to find sustainable solutions to systemic labor issues..

  • Title: Special Projects | Fair Labor Association
    Descriptive info: Traceability: Supply Chain Mapping and Risk Assessment.. Globalization has led to the emergence of low cost, efficient (and perhaps risky) supply chains spanning multiple countries.. Sourcing regions exhibit a wide range of economic, political, social, labor and environmental standards, which – combined with heightened public awareness – means that full traceability of a product and its components is likely to become a consistent demand made by governments, civil society organizations, and consumers.. In response, companies must make supply chain mapping and product tracing a standard business practice.. Read more.. about Traceability: Supply Chain Mapping and Risk Assessment.. ENABLE Project.. The ENABLE Project is an FLA initiative targeted toward the agricultural sector.. Activities include: agricultural monitoring; remediation; capacity building activities; and stakeholder engagement.. The stakeholder engagement component is an ENABLE initiative that seeks input from local and international experts on agricultural monitoring, remediation and capacity building efforts.. These consultations are organized with the overall objective of enhancing the effectiveness and relevance of the work the FLA is undertaking in the agriculture sector.. about ENABLE Project.. PREPARE Project.. The PREPARE project is a "top-down bottom-up" approach to improve the efficacy of worker representation in factories in Bangladesh.. The project, expected to run for 18 months, will employ qualified local trainers who will work directly with individuals at all levels of the factory organization – owners, managers, supervisors, workers, and worker representatives.. The PREPARE project will:.. about PREPARE Project.. HeRmeS-R Project.. The HeRmeS-R project was a two-year initiative (2007-2009) supported by the European Commission under the Leonardo da Vinci program and a grant from the Swiss government.. Eight European partners joined together in a multi-stakeholder collaborative approach to improve the human resource and CSR standards and policies of subcontractors across many industries.. Stakeholders created training programs to equip participants with the knowledge and tools needed to train executive staff.. These programs covered corporate social  ...   and “ethical” manufacturing and sourcing.. While there are a growing number of initiatives certifying the production standards for some of the raw materials, little information is available for labor standards in the rest of the supply chain.. Labor standards are not systematically evaluated in many global supply chains, often meaning that wages and working conditions are pushed downward in a race to the bottom to enable consumers to purchase cut-rate fashion.. about FLA Fashion Project.. Central America Project.. The Central America Project was launched in collaboration with FLA Participating Companies - including adidas Group, Nike, Inc.. , Gildan, Liz Claiborne, and PVH Corp.. - to develop long-lasting mechanisms and tools to produce measurable improvements in workplace conditions in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.. The project primarily focused on the issues of discrimination, harassment and abuse, and freedom of association in the apparel assembly or maquila sector.. about Central America Project.. Jo-In Project.. The Jo-In Project was a collaborative effort of six leading international labor rights and code implementation organizations, including the Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC), Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI), Fair Labor Association (FLA), Fair Wear Foundation (FWF), Social Accountability International (SAI), and Worker Rights Consortium (WRC).. The Jo-In project focused on enhancing collaboration among these organizations to identify best practices in the field of code implementation.. about Jo-In Project.. Cotton Project.. Cotton is a commodity used across the apparel industry - clothing, footwear, headwear, etc.. Concerns in the cotton production sector include child labor, worker health and safety due to the use of pesticides, and other violations of human, labor or environmental rights.. In some countries, state-sanctioned forced child labor is used to pick cotton.. Apparel companies leading the CSR movement need to broaden their focus and examine sourcing of raw materials to make sure that their factories are not using “dirty” cotton, tainted with violations of worker rights.. about Cotton Project..
