China Complaint Maier Sports October 2013

intermediate REPORT OF COMPLAINT IN china AT FACTORY THAT SUPPLIES Maier Sports

On 24 October FWF received a complaint from a worker working in a factory supplying Maier Sport. The complaint related to four labour standards: ’employment is freely chosen’, ‘reasonable hours of work’, legally binding employment relationship’ and ‘payment of a living wage’

The plaintiff filed mutiple complaints but given that Maier Sports will no longer continue working with this supplier, no remediation at this factory can take place. Verification with the plaintiffs was not possible, since FWF’s complaints handler was not able to contact the plaintiffs again. At the next Performance Check, FWF will verify the affiliates’ effort to analyse and set up a plan to reduce excessive overtime and to improve the social security coverage at Chinese suppliers. In addition, as part of the Performance Check FWF will review the affiliate’s efforts to implement steps towards payment of a living wage.
