Unions commonly report severe obstacles for workers who seek to organize or join unions and low unionization rates in the electronics industry. Companies, by contrast, rarely report on non-compliances with the freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining in their supply chains. Where does this leave public buyers? How can they verify if these rights are in fact upheld in their supply chains? In this session, we explore verification options for independent monitors and verification standards for public buyers. We also learn from public buyers’ practical experiences to promote a meaningful voice for workers in their supply chains.
