X BLACKLISTS SPINNING MILL AFTER REPORTS OF CHILD LABOUR ARE REVEALED
X will blacklist a spinning mill in southern India after a report claimed five manufacturers there use child labor and subjected workers, mostly women and girls, to “appalling” working conditions.
X will ban suppliers from using products made by Tamil Nadu-based Y, the Stockholm-based company said Tuesday. A Bangladeshi supplier has used yarn produced at the mill, though X doesn’t have a direct business agreement, spokeswoman Lena Enocson Almroth said in an e-mail. Y was “unwilling to cooperate with X in a transparent way.”
X, Y, and Z represent real corporations whose names we removed as a courtesy.
