In April 2011, Nike, Inc. requested the involvement of the FLA at the factory PT. Glostar Indonesia (Glostar) located in Sukabumi, Indonesia. The factory, owned and operated by Pou Chen Group, supplied Converse (a Nike, Inc. affiliate brand), as well as adidas and VF Corporation. Internal monitoring by Nike Inc., confirmed by internal monitoring by adidas, had found noncompliances in the area of harassment or abuse, among others.
FLA conducted an unannounced assessment of Glostar in December, and found issues in addition to those previously identified by brands’ internal monitors. FLA also conducted an anonymous survey of randomly-selected workers to understand their perceptions of the factory’s hiring system, grievance procedure, and workers’ participation.
