On February 28, 2011, FLA received a Third Party Complaint (3PC) from representatives of Sindicato de la Industria Textil y Actividades Conexas y Similares (SITS), a legally recognized union at F&D. The 3PC alleged a range of violations of FLA's Workplace Code of Conduct and Compliance Benchmarks with respect to payment of wages and benefits, overtime compensation, and freedom of association. Hanesbrands, an FLA Participating Company sourcing from F&D, is working with the factory to implement a remediation plan. In February 2012, FLA commissioned El Grupo de Monitoreo Independiente de El Salvador (GMIES) to verify the implementation and status of remediation at F&D.
