Hugo Boss

Hugo Boss rejoinder to union

The FLA assessment had been conducted at the request of Hugo Boss and we have been working intensively with the FLA to remedy the findings.  That process is almost complete and has been updated on the FLA website....Hugo Boss maintains strict neutrality with regard to workers freedom to associate and we will not try to influence workers in anyway....[T]here are several unions operating in the Turkish textile industry.  For this reason Hugo Boss prefers not to  favour any one union in Izmir....The cases referred to in the report were mostly old cases but needless to say Hugo Boss is looking into all the findings and making improvements to systems to prevent any such incidents in future...
