Complaint to the Swedish National Contact Point for the OECDGuidelines for Multinational Enterprises regarding actions by Electrolux Thailand.

Series for Responsible Investor (RI) Engagement: Freedom of association in the global electronics sector
This information sheet looks into policies and practices with regard to the right to organise and the right to collective bargaining in the global electronics industry.
This information sheet looks into the human rights abuses experienced by temporary agency workers, both those working at electronics companies’ own factories and those working at their suppliers. The sheet presents specific demands to the electronics industry with regard to this topic.
This report is aimed at exploring the working and living conditions of migrant labour in the electronics industry in Malaysia, with the aim of improving their working and living conditions by engaging companies in a discussion about their supply chain responsibilities. It is also aimed towards a formulation of recommendations that the industry can and should implement.
The purpose of the present report is to provide an overview of recent developments relating to the Congolese conﬂ ict mineral issue at different levels. The focus is on initiatives aiming to improve human rights and due diligence practices. Towards this end, a questionnaire was sent to 31 electronics companies whose products contain 3T minerals. 13 of them ultimately submitted a response. Based on these responses, it can be stated that a number of companies have taken active measures towards conﬂ ict-free supply of minerals from the DRC. While this, and recent legislative reforms in key jurisdictions, is an encouraging signal, a lot of considerable obstacles still remain. The fact that 18 companies decided not to contribute to this report, despite numerous reminders and requests, does not send a very encouraging signal of their commitment to responsible supply chain management.
