The response of the companies to specific cases is included in the report...we see the companies’ comments as no more than a public commitment to improve their corporate social responsibility practices... Chapter two includes two case studies of violations of human rights in the workplace in the electronics industry, documented by CEREAL between January 2005 and March 2006 in Mexico... CEREAL will continue to carry out its research on working conditions in the Mexican electronics industry and plans to publish an annual update.
