While UC is not a member of these labor rights organizations, our Trademarks & Licensing Department is involved in the licensing community regarding corporate responsibility and works with our licensing agency to monitor the activities of our licensees. As part of license agreements, UC requires licensees to agree to a code of conduct that is similar to the FLA to ensure licensees are committed to high standards of corporate responsibility and respect for worker rights. This department plans to include a section listing the code of conduct, including a list of factory disclosures showing where our licensees are having licensed products manufactured, on the Trademarks & Licensing website, but it isn't available at this time.
