Resolution regarding UM Apparel

Whereas, The University of Montana is an institution of higher education committed to educating students to be "informed, ethical, and engaged citizens of local and global communities";

Whereas, the current system of sublicensing Grizwear? through the Collegiate Licensing Company offers insufficient information about the source of the apparel;

Whereas, the Collegiate Licensing Company has a loose affiliation with the Fair Labor Association, which lacks the monitoring capability that the Worker Rights Consortium provides;

Whereas, affiliating with the Worker Rights Consortium will supply The University of Montana with essential information regarding currently unreported factory conditions, making these reports available to all students, faculty, and staff;

Whereas, signing on to the WRC's Designated Suppliers Program will allow The University of Montana to shift Grizwear? manufacturing to factories that promote fair labor standards thus enforcing UM's purchasing code of conduct;

Whereas, The University of Montana has the responsibility to promote fair labor standards in it’s business endeavors;

Therefore, Let It Be Resolved that ASUM supports The University of Montana affiliating with the Worker Rights Consortium and adopting the Designated Suppliers Program to ensure ethically responsible practices in regards to its apparel purchasing process.
