Report: Beyond voluntary codes and audits - a challenge for the Electronics Industry (July 2016)

The Jesuit-affiliated Centre for Reflection and Action on Labour Issues (CEREAL) released its seventh annual report on working conditions in the Mexican electronics industry.

Beyond voluntary codes and audits: a challenge for the Electronics Industry includes a critique of the social auditing of the Electronic Industry Citizenship Coalition’s (EICC’s) Code of Conduct, particularly its failure to detect and remediate widespread violations of freedom of association in Mexico. It also profiles a report on electronics workers’ struggle to be represented by independent unions in Ciudad Juarez, the rise of precarious forms of employment in the sector, and its assessment labour standards compliance in electronics factories in the Guadalajara area.

The report is available in English and Spanish.
