Electronics workers in precarious forms of employment earn low wages, work unpredictable hours, may not be properly trained for hazardous work, and risk losing their jobs and sometimes residency permits should they speak up for their rights. They may be employed legally or illegally, directly or indirectly for the factory where they work. They may be migrants or local workers, student workers or trainees, and work in any country. Electronics Watch highlights the challenges of precarious work in factories that make the electronic goods public sector organisations buy and helps to develop solutions that involve local civil society organisations, trade unions, electronics brands, and factories.
Come to the Electronics Watch Conference to:
- Hear directly from workplace monitors about conditions in factories that may be supplying goods to your institution
- Learn about best practices in socially responsible public procurement
- Share your own experiences and lessons learned
This conference is by invitation only and primarily intended for those practicing, or interested in, socially responsible public procurement. If you would like to attend, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
