This new Oxfam report, based on research in Viet Nam, explores the reality on the ground in Unilever’s operations and wider supply chain, and compares the findings with the company's high-level policy commitments. The company co-operated fully with the study, providing access to its staff, operations, data and suppliers. This enabled Oxfam to assess the labour standards in the context of international standards and local conditions. The study focused on issues which are important to workers but difficult for companies to measure and manage: Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining; a Living Wage; and Working Hours and Contract Labour.
