FLA has published a report outlining ongoing efforts by Apple's largest supplier, Foxconn, to implement the 15-month action plan developed following FLA's original investigation of three facilities in early 2012. Since FLA's last verification in July 2012, FLA writes that its assessors have found that significant progress had been made to reduce hours of work, and that worker representation in union committees had increased.
From January 15 – 23, 2013, FLA assessors revisited three Foxconn facilities in Guanlan, Longhua and Chengdu to verify the implementation status of remedial action items through December 31, 2012.
This report describes progress made by Apple and Foxconn to implemented action items agreed to following FLA's original investigation in February 2012. The January verification is FLA's second verification exercise.
