MEXICO: Monitoring Firm Checks Out Nike And Reebok Supplier
A five-person team from the independent monitoring organisation Verite has begun its five-day monitoring assignment at the Kukdong apparel factory in Mexico where a dispute between two unions last month led to a work stoppage and an examination of the factory's workplace practices. Verite, an Amherst, Mass-based non-profit labour and trade monitoring group, announced Monday that the team began conducting its monitoring project, Monday, February 5 and will continue through Friday, February 9. The team is working in concert with rotating observers whose role is to provide information to management, unions and buyers to assist the process for workers returning to resume their livelihoods. The observers possess a range of experience, including work with the United Nations and the International Red Cross.
