There is no perfect factory or farm. Local issues and cultural norms - combined with global factors such as economic pressure and consumer demand - result in new and ever-changing threats to workers' rights each day. International supply chains are so complex that it would be impossible for any individual organization or person to solve these problems alone. FLA affiliates include companies, universities and civil society organizations that are committed to protecting workers' rights by promoting adherence to international labor standards. These diverse stakeholders draw on FLA's expertise and learn from each others' experiences to develop ethical and equitable supply chains. Learn more about the efforts of FLA affiliates below and see the impact of our work.
About the school's commitment to protecting workers' rights and the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct: Notre Dame Licensees must participate in the Fair Labor Association (“FLA”). Licensees with annual consolidated revenues of $50 million or greater must either join the FLA as a Category A Licensee participating company or as a Category B Licensee and subject all facilities where Notre Dame licensed products are manufactured to the FLA monitoring process.
About the school's commitment to protecting workers' rights and the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct: In the spring of 1999, Penn joined the Fair Labor Association (FLA), an initiative sponsored by the United States Department of Labor and designed to promote the improvement of working conditions for these workers. To supplement the FLA Code, and ensure proper working conditions at Penn licensee facilities, Penn has formed a Task Force to draft a Code of Conduct for Penn licensees. This Task Force held its first two meetings last week.
