Findings from Joint Worker Survey Released
The results from a multi-organizational effort to identify common issues in working conditions across global supply chains has been released, the Global Seafood Alliance announced in early May. GSA is one of six nonprofit organizations that collaborated on this project to survey workers in a number of countries. The common goal was to speak to the workers responsible for making the products in the facilities participating in the organizations’ programs. The final report is available here.
The survey was conducted from October 2021 – March 2023 in labor intensive manufacturing facilities in exporting countries. In total, more than 14,000 workers were surveyed, primarily in Bangladesh, Vietnam, India, Italy, and Turkey. The industries represented include electronics, apparel, toys, textiles, and food & beverages.
