Nike Sees ‘Gaps’ in China Labour Laws

From Financial Times :

Workers at Nike ’s contract factories in China do not enjoy the same protection as their peers elsewhere because of “gaps” in the country’s labour laws, the global footwear giant has said in a report.

“We commend the important steps taken by the Chinese government to increase protection of workers’ rights,” Nike said in an inaugural report on its corporate social responsibility initiatives in China, where it works with some 180 factories employing about 210,000 workers.

“However, when comparing Chinese law with the basic protections outlined under the [International Labour Organisation] Convention, there are gaps in protection that workers elsewhere enjoy.”
