Court case against Dutch & Indian orgs withdrawn
30
Jan '08
Today, the Indian clothing manufacturer Fibre and Fabrics International (FFI) and subsidiary JKPL have withdrawn all court cases against the Clean Clothes Campaign, the India Committee of the Netherlands, a number of local Indian labour rights organisations and internet/ADSL-providers Antenna and XS4ALL.

This is the result of an agreement which has come into place via mediation by former Dutch Prime Minister Ruud Lubbers. CCC and ICN support the agreement – described in more detail in a statement issued by Lubbers – which we believe paves the way for a sustainable mechanism to solve possible future labour conflicts at G-Star supplier FFI/JKPL.

An important part of the mediation outcome is that, with the consent of all – including Indian - parties, an ombudsperson will be installed.

This ombudsperson will follow up on complaints from FFI/JKPL employees. A meeting with Indian parties will be arranged in the short term, where further decisions will be taken as to the terms of reference for this ombudsperson.

A “Committee of Custodians” will serve as a sounding board for the ombudsperson and safeguard that all parties adhere to the agreement. The committee will include Lubbers and Ashok Khosla, who has previously worked for the Indian government and the United Nations.

The ombudsperson will aim for solutions that are acceptable to all parties. When dealing with complaints confidentiality is crucial. The ombudsperson will regularly report on the processing of complaints.
