TTIA Statement regarding Industry and NGO’s Working Together for the Rights of Migrant Workers
TTIA members have been subjected to human rights advocacy investigations and, while we do not agree with all the statements that come with the findings of an investigation, we recognize there is room for improvement in the industry.
TTIA members take the approach to work together with NGO’s to promote and protect the human rights of migrant workers. We strongly support the practice of human rights advocates and groups to freely conduct their investigations and report their findings to the party being investigated. We also encourage dialogue between all parties to develop an understanding of the issues and work together for meaningful changes in the work place. It is only through cooperation that the goals of both NGO’s and industry will yield the healthiest and safest working environment that can be achieved.
