THERE IS NO SINGLE SOLUTION FOR WORKPLACE INJUSTICE. THERE ARE MANY AND AT FWF WE FIND THAT SOLUTIONS WORK BEST WHEN COMBINED.

Poor labour conditions can only be solved through multi-faceted solutions. The FWF approach brings together the key components needed for sustainable change. It means companies work step-by-step to improve conditions in their supply chains. It also means cooperation among a slew of stakeholders, and accountability among all of us. When fully executed, the FWF approach means results.

FWF restricts its focus to those phases of production where sewing is the main manufacturing process. These are among the most labour-intensive phases of the production process. It is also the stage of production where many labour problems are found, and where effective remedies can positively impact the lives of millions of workers.

FWF’s focus means that its staff has advanced and specialised knowledge of industry practice and trends. Focus also enables FWF to concentrate on building strong working relationships with those local and international stakeholders who, themselves, specialise in garments and textiles – a keystone for sustainable change in the industry.

LABOUR STANDARDS

“FWF TOOK CONSIDERABLE TIME TO DEVELOP A STRONG CODE AND MATCHING PRAGMATIC APPROACH FOR MEMBERS. AND ITS STRENGTH IS THAT IT IS STICKING TO THESE PRINCIPLES.”

– WILLY WAGENMANS, FOUNDING BOARD MEMBER OF FWF

The basis of the collaboration between FWF and a member is the Code of Labour Practices. The core of this code is made up from eight labour standards derived from ILO Conventions and the UN’s Declaration on Human Rights. This means the FWF Code of Labour Practices is based on internationally recognised standards which have been set through tripartite negotiation.

EMPLOYMENT IS FREELY CHOSEN

There shall be no use of forced, including bonded or prison, labour. (ILO Conventions 29 and 105)

THERE IS NO DISCRIMINATION IN EMPLOYMENT

Recruitment, wage policy, admittance to training programmes, employee promotion policy, policies of employment termination, retirement, and any other aspect of the employment relationship shall be based on the principle of equal opportunities, regardless of race, colour, sex, religion, political affiliation, union membership, nationality, social origin, deficiencies or handicaps (ILO Conventions 100 and 111).

NO EXPLOITATION OF CHILD LABOUR

There shall be no use of child labour. The age for admission to employment shall not be less than the age of completion of compulsory schooling and, in any case, not less than 15 years." (ILO Convention 138) "There shall be no forms of slavery or practices similar to slavery, such as the sale and trafficking of children, debt bondage and serfdom and forced or compulsory labour. [...] Children [in the age of 15-18] shall not perform work which, by its nature or the circumstances in which it is carried out, is likely to harm their health, safety or morals." (ILO Convention 182)

FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION AND THE RIGHT TO COLLECTIVE BARGAINING

The right of all workers to form and join trade unions and bargain collectively shall be recognised. (ILO Conventions 87 and 98) The company shall, in those situations in which the right to freedom of association and collective bargaining are restricted under law, facilitate parallel means of independent and free association and bargaining for all workers. Workers' representatives shall not be the subject of discrimination and shall have access to all workplaces necessary to carry out their representation functions. (ILO Convention 135 and Recommendation 143)

PAYMENT OF A LIVING WAGE

Wages and benefits paid for a standard working week shall meet at least legal or industry minimum standards and always be sufficient to meet basic needs of workers and their families and to provide some discretionary income. (ILO Conventions 26 and 131). Deductions from wages for disciplinary measures shall not be permitted nor shall any deductions from wages not provided for by national law be permitted. Deductions shall never constitute an amount that will lead the employee to receive less than the minimum wage. Employees shall be adequately and clearly informed about the specifications of their wages including wage rates and pay period.

REASONABLE HOURS OF WORK

Hours of work shall comply with applicable laws and industry standards. In any event, workers shall not on a regular basis be required to work in excess of 48 hours per week and shall be provided with at least one day off for every seven-day period. Overtime shall be voluntary, shall not exceed 12 hours per week, shall not be demanded on a regular basis and shall always be compensated at a premium rate. (ILO Convention 1)

SAFE AND HEALTHY WORKING CONDITIONS

A safe and hygienic working environment shall be provided, and best occupational health and safety practice shall be promoted, bearing in mind the prevailing knowledge of the industry and of any specific hazards. Appropriate attention shall be paid to occupational hazards specific to this branch of the industry and assure that a safe and hygienic work environment is provided for. Effective regulations shall be implemented to prevent accidents and minimise health risks as much as possible (following ILO Convention 155). Physical abuse, threats of physical abuse, unusual punishments or discipline, sexual and other harassment, and intimidation by the employer is strictly prohibited.

LEGALLY BINDING EMPLOYMENT RELATIONSHIP

Obligations to employees under labour or social security laws and regulations arising from the regular employment relationship shall not be avoided through the use of labour-only contracting arrangements, or through apprenticeship schemes where there is no real intent to impart skills or provide regular employment. Younger workers shall be given the opportunity to participate in education and training programmes.

Maatschappelijk verantwoord ondernemen daar staat Bestex Fabricage voor en daar voelen we ons ook verantwoordelijk voor.

In onze onderneming zijn we permanent bezig met het implementeren en verbeteren van processen op het gebied van veilige en betere werkomstandigheden in de keten.

Van al degene die direct of indirect voor ons werkzaam zijn willen we dat ze dit op verantwoorde wijze  kunnen en mogen uitvoeren. Om deze visie en uitgangspunten te concretiseren en uit te voeren en te verwezenlijken werkt Bestex Fabricage samen met de Fair Wear Foundation.

Bestex Fabricage  is sinds 2014  lid van de Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) – deze onafhankelijke, non-profit organisatie werkt samen met bedrijven en fabrieken aan het verbeteren van de arbeidsomstandigheden in de kledingindustrie. De leden van de Fair Wear Foundation vertegenwoordigen samen meer dan 120 merken in zeven Europese landen – de producten worden in meer dan 20.000 verkooppunten in 80 landen over de hele wereld verkocht. De FWF is in 11 productielanden in Azië, Afrika en Europa actief. Fair Wear Foundation is opgericht door verschillende partijen in de kledingbranche; door deze verscheidenheid aan belanghebbenden is de FWF een multi-stakeholder initiatief dat voor vertrouwen zorgt.

De Fair Wear Foundation heeft een gedragscode ontwikkeld: de kern van deze code bestaat uit acht arbeidsnormen die zijn afgeleid van de IAO-verdragen en de verklaring voor de mensenrechten van de VN. De gedragscode van de Fair Wear Foundation:

  • Vrije keus van arbeid.
  • Geen discriminatie van werknemers.
  • Geen kinderarbeid.
  • Vrijheid van vakvereniging en het recht op collectief handelen.
  • Betaling van een leefbaar loon.
  • Geen excessieve werktijden.
  • Veilige en gezonde arbeidsomstandigheden.
  • Juridisch bindende arbeidsverhouding.

Controle

Fair Wear Foundation-leden worden ieder jaar gecontroleerd met behulp van de Brand Performance Check: dit hulpmiddel evalueert en rapporteert de activiteiten van de FWF-leden. Bestex Fabricage is door de Brand Perfomance Check in de categorie ‘goed’ geplaatst – een prestatie waar we trots op zijn!
