Swansea University: Say YES to the Workers' Rights Consortium

    1. Petition by

      Swansea University People and Planet Society

Universities spend thousands of pounds on clothes every year. Many of these products are produced in sweatshop conditions in the developing world. We have a chance to change this.

If Swansea University signs up to the Workers' Rights Consortium:

- They will independently monitor the conditions of the factories indirectly used by the university.

- Swansea University will then be able to make sure that no sweatshop labour is ever used in its supply chain!

- This move will also help the university to move further up the green league!
