A brief description of the institution’s WRC or FLA membership, including the year membership was last established or renewed:
ESF joined FLA in February of 2019.
In addition, ESF follows the SUNY System's anti-sweatshop policy and a corresponding anti-sweatshop procedure. This policy and procedure are enforced on an ongoing basis, especially with regards to apparel and sports equipment purchases originating from the Department of Athletics and Recreation.
The SUNY Anti-Sweatshop Policy (policy #7559) and the anti-sweatshop procedure (procedure #7560), governs purchases of apparel, textiles, and sports equipment. In accordance with that procedure, anytime ESF or its contractors purchases any of those kinds of items from a vendor, the College requires the vendor to complete a Certification of Compliance with Fair Labor Conditions form, which requires the vendor to certify that the manufacturing of the items the College will be buying "will be done in compliance with all applicable labor and occupational safety laws including but not limited to child labor laws, wage and hour laws and workplace safety laws" (http://www.esf.edu/business/purchasing/procedures.htm).
