In June 2012, the Fair Labor Association (FLA) was notified of worker unrest at Star S.A. in El Progreso, Honduras. This unrest began on May 3, 2012, when the factory was acquired from Anvil Holdings by Gildan Activewear Inc. (“Gildan”), a FLA-affiliated company. To get a thorough understanding of the situation on the ground, the FLA commissioned COVERCO, an accredited independent NGO monitoring organization, to conduct an exploratory investigation to ascertain changes in workplace environment occurring during the ownership transition. Download the complete report from COVERCO below, along with FLA's summary and recommendations.
