1999 Bangor Clean Clothes Resolution

Expert Rating:
Public Rating:
Summary:
The resolution establishes guidelines for the government when buying clothing, footwear and other products from responsible contractors. Bidders to supply items such as police and fire uniforms, footwear and recreational equipment will be asked a series of questions: Where are the goods made? Is child or forced labor used there? Has the manufacturing facility been determined to have violated international labor standards? Are unions allowed? What are the wages like? The city then takes this information into account as one factor in deciding who gets the city’s business.
