Webinar on Worker-Driven Social Responsibility

March 2020

On 25 March 2020 FLEX and the US-based Worker-Driven Social Responsibility Network organised a webinar to explore Worker-Driven Social Responsibility, or ‘WSR’, as a tool for tackling labour abuse in supply chains. This is a recording of that webinar.

WSR is an exciting new model for tackling labour abuse in supply chains that has demonstrably improved working conditions in a range of contexts. It is similar to collective bargaining in that it involves a group of workers jointly negotiating their rights, with the difference that it targets companies at the top of supply chains instead of direct employers.
