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.
