Freedom of association in the global electronics sector

This information sheet is about freedom of association in the electronics sector. It is part of a series of information sheets by the Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations (SOMO) that aim to support Responsible Investors in their critical engagement with the electronics companies in their portfolio.

In previous sheets three phases in the electronics industry value chain are discussed: mining of metals used in electronics, production in low-wage countries, and the disposal of electronic waste. A recent sheet presents civil society concerns with regard to temporary agency work in this 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.
