The first Japanese multinational to sign a Global Framework Agreement with IndustriALL, Mizuno commits to minimum standards throughout its factories in the UK, USA, Thailand, China, and Japan. The commitments also extend to Mizuno’s suppliers in several countries in Asia.
Mizuno mainly produces sport related goods such as sport clothing, golf clubs, and athletic shoes among others.
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.
