China supplier seminars 2011 by FWF
Jul '11
Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) will host China supplier seminars 2011 - Social compliance: From burden to benefit seminar. The seminar will be held on 23 September 2011 in Suzhou, Jiangsu, China.

FWF affiliates and their key suppliers in eastern China are invited to join this exciting exchange of ideas and experiences regarding FWF's work and the process of improving working conditions in Chinese garment factories.

Factory representatives, FWF affiliates, agents, local stakeholders and auditors will all be present to share their knowledge.

Who is invited?
FWF has invited affiliates and ETI members with a significant part of their production in eastern China. We ask each member to encourage one or two key factories and/or agents to attend the seminar.

Supplier seminar highlights:
The latest on FWF factory membership
Recently FWF opened up membership to factories that have shown considerable progress after previous audits. A top management representative of one of FWF's new factory members in China will present his experiences in the process of working towards FWF membership, and further steps that lie ahead.

The new wage ladder tool: working towards living wages
FWF has developed a wage ladder tool, which graphically shows how wages paid in each audited factory compare with national or regional benchmarks, which have been developed by a variety of stakeholders. FWF staff will present this innovative tool and provide guidance on how it can be helpful in discussions about wage levels.

Social insurance reform: recent and expected developments
Payment of social insurance has become a key compliance issue in China, and it is anticipated that the existing system will be reformed. FWF will invite authoritative experts to share their views and expertise and will facilitate discussion between stakeholders and factories.

Meet representatives of local stakeholders, FWF staff, auditors and training experts
The seminar provides an excellent opportunity for sharing experiences and learning from colleagues and counterparts at factories, brands, and stakeholder organisations.

Fair Wear Foundation (FWF) is an international verification initiative dedicated to enhancing workers' lives all over the world. We work closely with a growing number of companies that produce clothing and other sewn products and that take responsibility for their supply chain.
