WASHINGTON — The Worker Rights Consortium, in a report released Thursday, charged a Cambodian apparel manufacturer with violating workers’ rights over nearly four years while allegedly making apparel for the U.S. Defense Department, several brands and retailers, and university licensees. The consortium called on companies and the government to pressure the firm to remedy the violations.
The labor rights watchdog group accused Zongtex Garment Mfg., a Taiwanese-owned company operating two factories in Cambodia that employ a combined 900 workers, with using underage workers, involuntary and excessive overtime, wage and benefit violations, health and safety violations and failure to allow union organizing.
