The Ad-Hoc Committee on Sweatshop Labor (Posted 2/28/2000)

On the Importance of the Campus-wide Committee Process in Regard to the Ad-Hoc Committee on Sweatshop Labor: After Almanac went to press today with the February 15 issue, the following statement was issued by President Judith Rodin:

"As I said to the members of Penn Students Against Sweatshops, as I have continued to deepen my understanding of the Fair Labor Association and the Worker Rights Consortium, I have developed some serious questions about the FLA and a growing interest in the WRC," said President Judith Rodin. "However, as I said to the students this morning, I still need to hear the views of the Ad-Hoc Committee on Sweatshop Labor. I again asked the students to engage the committee and to allow its members to discuss fully which organization or organizations Penn should join. Once Penn Students Against Sweatshops came to University Council with their concerns in December, they initiated a campus-wide committee process. They now need to allow that committee to have its voice. It is important to me and it is important to the University community." (Posted 2/14/2000)
