ICN vs. Kubbinga

Aperçu de la plainte

Date de soumission 20 June 2001
Statut actuel Rejected
Thème Labour violations in Indian football production
Résumé de la plainte The complaint states that Kubbinga’s Indian suppliers have violated labour rights in the production of footballs. The complaint is based on the report, “The dark side of football - child and adult labour in India’s football industry and the role of FIFA” (June 2000) and subsequent fieldwork.

ICN reported that during a visit to the Indian supplier of Kubbinga iit confirmed there were no unions active. Except for some “stitching centres”, there was no indication that home producers receive minimum wages. There are also occupational health and safety concerns. CN stated that there was sufficient evidence to suspect that Adidas footballs (which Kubbinga imports from Mayor & Company) were produced by employees with wages inferior to the minimum wage, without access to trade unions or proper health and security standards. In November 1999, there was strong evidence that this supplier was using child labourers.

Développements/Résultat After one meeting with ICN and consulting with the OECD Investment Committee, the Dutch NCP rejected the complaint, citing the lack of an investment nexus.
