—–In Support Empowerment of Chinese Workers in Factories Supplying Disney

SACOM have released a report on 18th August 2005 named “Looking for Mickey Mouse’s Conscience – A survey of the working conditions of Disney supplier factories in China” to disclose that there are violations of labor rights regarding wages, work time and health and safety of workers in factories in China that are producing Disney’s products. Though Disney has declared that they will monitor the factories according to their own code of conduct for manufacturers, we have found that factories produce fake records of wage and work time, and they train workers to give ‘proper’ answers to Disney’s auditors.

Whose Sweatshop Computers?

In the past two decades, the computer industry has swiftly developed as computer products have become integral to everyday life. While espousing images of progressive technology and professionalism, large brands have simultaneously neglected the exploitation of workers behind their production processes in developing countries.

Chinese Women Workers Organize in the Export Zones

Article Introduction: China’s economic reforms since the late 1970s have brought about an unprecedented surge in internal rural to urban migration. Most transnational corporations in Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, the United States, and Europe, and their subcontractors, recruit millions of peasant migrants, in particular unmarried and young women, to work in export-led Special Economic Zones (SEZs). Limited educational opportunities, especially for females, a lack of village employment prospects, and low prices for agricultural products are some factors that have pushed young girls in their late teens, and the unemployed in general, out of their villages. Some rural women also aspire to escape arranged marriages, familial conflicts, and [...]

SACOM nominated Disney for the Public Eye Awards 2006

Serious labor and human rights violations by Walt Disney subcontractors tarnish the carefree image that the entertainment giant tries to present to us through its films and cartoon figures. However the company does not publish the names of its suppliers in China and therefore prevents the verification of working conditions through independent inspectors. SACOM calls on Walt Disney to publish the names of its suppliers and to allow independent NGOs to make regular inspections of their operations.
