Electronics Watch video calls upon public institutions to speak with one voice

The new Electronics Watch video is part of the Electronics Watch campaign to encourage public procurers to use their power and come together to demand better conditions for workers in the global electronics industry.

The documentary shows testimonies from electronics industry workers, including Mi Yeon Kim, a Samsung worker in Korea, who explains how the conditions in the semiconductor factory where she worked caused her to lose a baby and needing to undergo cancer treatment.

 

 

The video also includes statements from Andy Davies from London University Purchases Consortium, affiliate of Electronics Watch, who explains that "it is absolutely essential that public sector services can be delivered without causing harm to others" and Electronics Watch Trustee Jim Cranshaw, who highlights how "Electronics Watch enables the public sector to speak with one voice to the market by using common tools and common contracts and it monitors factories so the public sector can find out what's actually going on".

Electronics Watch encourages all supporters to use this new tool to increase awareness and emphasise the importance of Socially Responsible Public Procurement.
