Sweatshop Free Compliance

In October 2008, the Portland City Council passed the City of Portland Sweatshop Free Procurement Policy, which requires apparel contractors with City contacts at or beyond the formal contract dollar threshold to comply with the City's Code of Conduct for Apparel Contractors ["Code of Conduct"].  The Code of Conduct requires that contractors, and their supply chain partners utilized to supply apparel to the City, comply with labor and health & safety standards that ensure workers are not subjected to sweatshop conditions.
