Alianza Update: Corporate Monitoring Fails Big Time

September, 28 2010 Share


For at least the last 6 months, the abusive Alianza sweatshop in Guatemala has met all the requirements to be certified by the U.S. apparel industry's Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) program. How is this possible, given that for years Alianza management has been robbing the workers of their Social Security deductions, robbing them and their children health care and their pensions, while workers attempting to exercise their legal right to organize are immediately fired and blacklisted, all overtime is forced, and abusive supervisors humiliate the women workers?

WRAP should explain to the American people exactly how they monitor factory conditions and why they failed so miserably at Alianza.
