Piloting Strategies to Support Workers Beyond Tier 1

 

Overview

Turkey’s large garment and textile supply chain is complex. The upper tiers of the supply chain are often difficult to trace and largely ignored, with support for worker rights often limited to Tier 1 suppliers.

Employers in small and medium-sized enterprises often operate informally without awareness of national or international requirements on decent work and child labor mitigation strategies.

Fall Rush

Fall Rush, a wholly owned division of Follett Corporation, is committed to operating within a safe, healthy, and fair work environment.

Each supplier shares our same level of commitment and adheres to all practices within our Code of Conduct.

We believe there is an added value that comes with operating as a responsible business that improves the quality of life, builds awareness, and works through any issues within our supply chain.
