Tóm tắt: Multinational electronics companies have been keen to invest in production facilities in Vietnam in recent years. However, in the past decade their biggest incentive - cheap labour - and laws restricting dialogue between workforce and employers have created conflict in Vietnam's private sector...In this report, makeITfair evaluates the corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies of seven digital camera companies in Vietnam. Particular focus is put on freedom of association and collective bargaining and the working conditions at four of the factories. The main question addressed is this: what due diligence processes should multinational electronics companies have in place to ensure they respect human rights...and to comply with the recently revised OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the recently adopted UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights?...The four camera companies included in the local research with workers' interviews have been given the opportunity to read and comment on the findings before publication. Their comments are included in the report. [refers to Samsung, Kodak, Leica, Olympus, Sanyo Electric (part of Panasonic), Pentax (part of Ricoh), Nikon (part of Mitsuibushi Group), FujiFilm, Canon]
