Anti-Sweatshop Advisory Committee Meeting
May 30, 2006

USAS Designated Supplier Proposal.

Letter Regarding Hermosa & Chi Fung Factories.

We discussed the letter that we had decided to send to licensees of these two factories in El Salvador, and Isabel agreed to make revisions based on the latest report from the WRC.

Support for Improved Factories.

WRC Factory Reports.

We reviewed the WRC report on Gildan Activewear factories in Honduras. The Gildan El Progreso factory was closed in Sept. 2004 to squelch union activity, and in Jan. 2005 Gildan agreed to rehire El Progreso workers on a preferential basis at its other Honduran factories to make up for this violation of licensee codes of conduct. Gildan’s compliance with the agreement has had mixed reviews by the WRC, who will continue to monitor the situation.

Next Meeting.

We did not set another meeting date since we were not sure when the next DSP Working Group meeting would be.
