Today the non-profit organisation Students & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior (SACOM), supported by Bread for All, released two independent reports on an in-factory labor rights training program at two China-based suppliers to technology company HP. This pilot program is a first step towards a new worker-based CSR model. The training took place in two electronics factories located in Dongguan, southern China. In the first factory, Labor Education & Service Network (LESN), a non-profit labor NGO, provided Delta Electronics (Dongguan) a basic labor rights training program for 1,549 workers and conducted several consultations for middle and lower management staff in corporate responsibility... Simultaneously, the Chinese Working Women Network (CWWN), another non-profit labor NGO, provided trainings to two groups of workers in Chicony Electronics (Dongguan), the second HP supplier.
