Report on Alianza Fashion factory in Guatemala & company responses

In September 2010, National Labor Committee (NLC) issued a report "Alianza Fashion: A Test Case for the Guatemalan Government & the Office of the United States Trade Representative", alleging labour abuses at the Alianza Fashion factory in Guatemala, including forced overtime, low wages, and denial of freedom of association.

On 28 September, NLC issued a statement saying that Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) “failed miserably” when it certified the factory.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Alianza Fashion, the US buyers and WRAP to respond:

(Note: Charming Shoppes sent us the letter they had sent to the NLC on 30 Sep in response to the report.  The letter is addressed to "The Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights" -- the new name for the NLC, which the NLC is in the process of transitioning to.)
