  • Other provisions received a moderate level of support
additional suggestions for labor and human rights
Additional Suggestions for Labor and Human Rights

  • A related suggestion was to specifically prohibit gender based discrimination
other observations
Other Observations
  • In each of the remaining sections, only one provision received significant support
observations regarding provisions receiving little to no support
Observations Regarding Provisions Receiving Little to No Support
  • Some provisions likely received little support due to the view that they were implicit in other requirements or already required under existing laws
  • Other provisions may have received less support due to vagueness or because group members thought they were unnecessary
    • Affirmative Action
    • Environmental Reporting
    • Conflict of Interest, Debarment and Gifts
    • Compliance with OSHA
    • Overtime Premium Requirement
observations regarding provisions receiving little to no support1
Observations Regarding Provisions Receiving Little to No Support
  • Other provisions may have received minimal votes as a result of vagueness
    • UN Global Compact Environmental Standards
    • Reduce resource use/waste/emissions
    • Reasonable hours
  • Finally, some provisions likely received few votes because they were a low priority
    • Product content restrictions
    • Trade embargoes
    • Standardized grievance process
additional suggestions
Additional Suggestions
  • Provide incentives to comply rather than punishments for noncompliance
    • According to some studies, penalties decrease worker trust in auditors as a result of increased pressure from supplier
  • Include provisions covering the following areas: child labor, forced labor, worker health and safety, freedom of association, collective bargaining and discrimination
    • Four focuses of the ILO Declaration of Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work
member submissions
Member Submissions
  • Fairly even distribution
  • Comparatively high level of support
  • A requirement that suppliers accept the UW’s expressed values could be included in the code’s introduction
  • Other sections may require additional refinement
