WORKING WITH OUR FACTORIES
Fremont Die is involved in a range of caring activities to promote fair labor practices and ensure good working conditions for the employees working in the factories that we rely on for quality products.
Fair Labor Association (FLA)
FLA's Multi-Stakeholder Approach to Improving Workers' Lives
The products we buy should not come at the cost of workers' rights. The Fair Labor Association believes that all goods should be produced fairly and ethically, and brings together three key constituencies - universities, civil society organizations (CSOs) and companies - to find sustainable solutions to systemic labor issues. Since 1999, FLA has helped improve workers' lives by:
- Holding affiliated companies accountable for implementing FLA’s Code of Conduct across their supply chains.
- Conducting external assessments so that consumers can be assured of the integrity of the products they buy.
Fremont Die Consumer Products, Inc., has been an active member with the Fair Labor Association since 2009.
As part of its membership obligations, FLA randomly, and unannounced, audits a sampling of a supply chain to assess the quality of our efforts and help us identify any areas of concern. The audit results are posted for public access on the FLA website at http://www.fairlabor.org
Factory Workplace Code of Conduct
- The center of our Social and Environmental Responsibility program is our Workplace Code of Conduct. Our Code is based on Fair Labor Association (FLA) labor standards and requires compliance with the country laws where our factories operate.
- We developed our documentation so that our expectations are clear to our suppliers. At Fremont Die we focused on improving social and environmental conditions and we motivate our suppliers to do the same.
- Our Code of Conduct outlines our policies on the following: forced labor, child labor; harassment, abuse and violence; nondiscrimination; health and safety; freedom of association and collective bargaining; wages and benefits; hours of work; overtime compensation; and compliance with the law.
