As a part of the Play Fair Campaign dedicated to improving the conditions of workers in sportswear production, negotiations have been underway between a group of Indonesian labor unions representing textile workers and some of the major sportswear brands, such as Puma, Nike, Adidas, and New Balance. The negotiations recently produced an agreement in which the major brands committed to “delivering improvements in the exercise of freedom of association” for workers in the sportswear industry.
As the Clean Clothes Campaign press release points out, the unions also raised concerns about wages and the use of contract labor, but these were not included in the agreement. The Indonesian labor unions involved in the negotiations included SPN, GSBI, Garteks, KASBI and F.PTSPK. You can read more about the agreement here.
