Nike, Reebok, Levi Strauss et al disclose factory violations
Date: 4 Jun 2003
The US Fair Labor Association has released a report detailing independent audits of seven major footwear and apparel companies looking at the protection of workers rights in their global operations on a factory by factory basis.
The audits purport to show every instance of non-compliance with the FLA code found by accredited independent monitors.
The companies included in this year’s report are adidas-Salomon, Eddie Bauer, Levi Strauss & Co., Liz Claiborne Inc., Nike Inc., Phillips-Van Heusen and Reebok International Ltd.
“This first round of audits shows that there is room for improvement at all of these companies and in all of these factories,” said Michael Posner, FLA Board Member and Executive Director, Lawyers Committee for Human Rights. “The companies deserve a lot of credit for trusting the public with the grit as well as the gloss, on an issue that will take persistence and struggle for many years to come.”
The full audit results are available on the FLA website.
