On August 20, 2008, FLA released a report on a Third Party Complaint (3PC) filed by the union Sindicato de Trabajadores TOS Dominicana in the TOS Dominicana factory owned and operated by Hanesbrands, Inc. and located in the Dominican Republic. The complaint alleged noncompliance issues in the factory with respect to several elements of the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct, particularly Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining. FLA collaborated with Hanesbrands and the Workers Rights Contortium (WRC) to help the company reach an agreement with workers, effectively closing the 3PC at Step 2 of the 3PC filing process.
