Workers Rights Consortium


The Worker Rights Consortium (WRC) is a non-profit organization created by college and university administrations, students and labor rights experts. The WRC's purpose is to assist in the enforcement of manufacturing Codes of Conduct adopted by colleges and universities; these Codes are designed to ensure that factories producing clothing and other goods bearing college and university names respect the basic rights of workers. There are more than 100 colleges and universities affiliated with the WRC.

The WRC works with labor rights experts in the United States and around the world to investigate factory conditions and reports its findings to colleges and universities and the general public. Where violations are uncovered, the WRC works with colleges and universities, U.S.-based retail corporations and local workers and organizations to correct the problem and improve conditions. The WRC is also developing a mechanism to ensure that workers producing collegiate goods can lodge complaints about Code of Conduct violations, safely and confidentially, by contacting local non-governmental organizations and the WRC.
