Publication date: 
Thursday, September 1, 2005

In September 2005, FLA published a report on the Third Party Complaint (3PC) filed by the Garment Industry Labor Union with support from CLIST, a local NGO, alleging the dismissal of workers for organizing at the MSP factory in Thailand. The workers also filed a complaint before the National Commission on Human Rights and Labor Relations in Thailand. The ruling from that complaint favored the reinstatement of workers with back wages. FLA Participating Company Nike, Inc., sourced from the factory at the time. Nike, Inc. worked with factory management to draft a remediation plan that complied with the ruling, as well as negotiated a recognition agreement with the Garment Industry Labor Union and CLIST. FLA Ombudsperson Dr. Lae Dilokvidharat oversaw the implementation of the agreement.
