First global framework agreement signed by Mizuno
Nov '11
A global framework agreement was signed by Mizuno, a Japanese multinational company, and the International Textile, Garment and Leather Workers Federation (ITGLWF) Japanese affiliate, UI ZENSEN.

Mizuno Corporation is headquartered in Osaka and Tokyo and employs 1,983 workers in Japan. The company produces goods at their factories in UK, USA, Thailand, China and Japan as well as at suppliers in several countries mainly in Asia. Mizuno mainly produces sport related goods such as sport wears, golf clubs, athletic shoes among others.

This agreement covering the textile, garment and leather industries is the first of its kind signed by a Japanese company in our sector.

ITGLWF President, Hisanobu Shimada, and ITGLWF General Secretary, Klaus Priegnitz, believe that this agreement which includes the commitment of all signatories to ensure the implementation of eight ILO core labour conventions is a step forward and a way to protect the interests of the textile workers worldwide.

The International Textile, Garment and Leather Workers Federation is a Global Union Federation bringing together 217 affiliated organisations in 110 countries.

Mizuno Corporation was established in Osaka, Japan in 1906 by Rihachi Mizuno. Today, Mizuno USA is located in Norcross, GA and continues to manufacture and distribute high quality golf, baseball, softball, running, track & field and volleyball equipment, apparel, and footwear.
