Is the institution a member of the Worker Rights Consortium?:

Is the institution a member of the Fair Labor Association? :

A brief description of the institution’s WRC or FLA membership, including the year membership was last established or renewed:

UC is a member of:

Fair Labor Association, which is managed by a tripartite board made up of colleges/universities, civil society organizations and brands. The FLA “has helped improve the lives of millions of workers around the world. As a collaborative effort of socially responsible companies, colleges and universities, and civil society organizations, FLA creates lasting solutions to abusive labor practices by offering tools and resources to companies, delivering training to factory workers and management, conducting due diligence through independent assessments and advocating for greater accountability and transparency from companies, manufacturers, factories and others involved in global supply chains.”

The Worker Rights Consortium “is an independent labor rights monitoring organization, conducting investigations of working conditions in factories around the globe.” Their board is composed of representatives from United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS), labor rights experts and colleges/universities. It is their purpose “to combat sweatshops and protect the rights of workers who make apparel and other products. The WRC conducts independent, in-depth investigations; issues public reports on factories producing for major brands; and aids workers at these factories in their efforts to end labor abuses and defend their workplace rights.”

UC is a member of both organizations as compliance is monitored and enforced in different, yet complementary, ways.
