Transparency through Mobile Internet

Language Bahasa / English
Project title Transparency through mobile internet. Enabling apparel workers and employers to check, debate, negotiate and publish wages and working conditions online
Funded by C&A Foundation
Duration April 2017 - April 2019
Goal of the project Despite widespread improvement efforts in Indonesia many garment factories still fail to comply with minimum wage and labour law. Currently, workers and unions do not have access to granular information comparing compliance between factories, limiting ability for unions to negotiate improvements, for workers to make informed decisions on where to work. Together with partners KSBSI and Garteks, WageIndicator will adapt their existing “Decent Work Check” survey, to collect information directly from garment workers, publishing their feedback on user-friendly webpages to enable workers and buyers to compare data between factories. The grant will also enable WageIndicator to collect and codify garment industry CBAs to add to their existing CBA database on and to host local “debates" with employers, unions, labor inspectors and brands to catalyze improvements.
