On 24 May 2019 a specific instance was filed by a Czech non-governmental organisation against a Czech outdoor garment and equipment reseller company at the Czech NCP. The complaint concerns activities of this company’s supplier in Myanmar related to manufacturing garment consumer products. The complainants allege that there have been documented cases of systemic labour rights violations in a factory operated by the company’s supplier, which the company failed to identify and address. Complainants are seeking mediation from the NCP to ensure that the company implements an effective due diligence process, examines in collaboration with local workers’ organisations whether labour rights are respected in its suppliers’ factories in the region, and regularly publicly reports its findings and a list of suppliers.
The Czech NCP offered its good offices for a process of mediation.
