Universities to take a stand for fair labor

Participants met Friday in a forum to discuss setting university policy on producing licensed apparel in sweatshops.

Representatives from across the state and country, including experts from the University of Notre Dame, DePaul University and IU discussed ways to prevent apparel from being made in sweatshops, and the impact universities can have to promote fair labor practices worldwide.

Members of IU’s “No Sweat” group said they have a great working relationship with IU administrators, and will continue to work to improve university policy. Meanwhile a professor from Depaul University said she ‘s planning on bringing the information back to the school, and was unsure about its policy on fair labor practices.
