Apparel Industry Partnership-Fair Labor
The AIP-FLA code is scheduled to be the topic
6f discussion at the open forum tomorrow in
Angell Hall Auditorium A at 5 p.m.
Charles Kernaghan, executive director of the
National Labor Committee; University alum
Michael Posner, executive director of the Lawyers
Committee on Human Rights; and Mark
Mc inson, chief economist for the Union of
cedletrades, Industries and Textile Employees
are scheduled to be the keynote speakers at the
Michigan Student Assembly President Bram
Elias said the assem4ly is spending $1,500 to fly
Kernaghan, Posner and Levinson into Ann Arbor
for the forum.
Elias said the expense is worth it because "this
iggoing to educate the students."
The AIP-FLA code has come under fire by stu-
activists and by some national labor organi-
zation officials, including Kernaghan and
Levinson, because they claim the standards in the
code are not strong enough.
After a 51-hour sit-down demonstration in
University President Lee Bollinger's office by 30
members of Students Organizing for Labor and
Economic Equality last month, the administration
decided to hold off on signing on to the AIP-FLA
alliance, pending further study.
Figel said the AIP-FLA code is "not a perfect
agreement ... but as we learn we can make
The AIP-FLA code calls for the elimination of
slave and child labor and restrictions on the num-
ber of hours worked, among other items.
While student activists and university adminis-
trators at campuses nationwide recently have
made agreements on individual codes of conduct,
many colleges have signed on to the AIP-FLA
"Right now we have 50 universities signed on;
we expect that number to rise," Figel said.
But critics say the structure of the AIP-FLA
code hinders the process to amend it.
"Under the (two thirds) super-majority vote,
three companies (on the board) could consistently
block any change," Kernaghan said.
Posner, whose Lawyers Committee on Human
Rights is part of the AIP-FLA alliance, contends
that the code is a foundation for greater improve-
"I think there is a way to build on the FLA,"
Figel said several companies thought the AIP-
FLA proposals were too harsh and withdrew their
support while "on the other side, you have a lot of
human rights groups saying it's not-tough enough,"
adding the AIP-FLA code is "the only process out
"We need something that will actually work
rather than on something that we just talk about,"
said Maria Eitel, Nike's vice president of corpo-
Kernaghan, who discovered sweatshop labor
conditions in factories producing apparel for a
clothing line bearing the name of talk show host
Kathie Lee Gifford, said he is wary of some of
"This is a very corporate controlled public
agenda," he said.
Kidd said Nike raised the monthly wage of
Indonesian footwear workers from 200,000
Indonesian rupiahs last October to 265,000 rupi-
ahs this month - above the national minimum
"It is unparalleled by any other company," said
Simon Pestridge, Nike's labor practices manager.
When Kernaghan computed the currency
exchange rate, he said the change only amounted
to a 1 cent increase - from 14 to 15 cents per
"It was embarrassing," Kernaghan said. "They
throw out those numbers expecting nobody to
check into them."
For tomorrow's forum, Posner said he hopes to
have a "lively open discussion," adding that he
thought there were some misconceptions with the
AIP-FLA code he hopes to clarify.
Kernaghan also said he is looking forward to the
discussions tomorrow and is especially pleased
with the student activism on labor issues at the
"Again, the University and the students are tak-
ing the initiative ... because it's open debate, open
discussion," he said, adding that "this is the best of
during previous days of shelling from
the Yugoslav side. Albanian military
officials, however, reported that the
Yugoslav shells included "cluster
bomblets, some of which explode
immediately, some when people step on
them,"said Capt. Graham Wiltshire, the
British defense attache in Albania.
President Clinton met with members
of Congress in Washington to discuss
the conflict, and some members sug-
gested that he shifted his position on the
use of U.S. ground forces.
Clinton for weeks has said he has "no
intention" of sending in ground troops
except as part of a protective force after
a peace agreement is reached.
Clinton again used the "no intention"
phrase but added that he was not ruling
out the eventual possibility of deploying
ground troops, several participants said.
Many legislators and other critics
have said it was unwise to signal to
President Slobodan Milosevic, the
Yugoslav and Serb leader, that he need
not worry about U.S. ground forces
because that might have emboldened
Yugoslav forces in their rampage
Sen. Joseph Lieberman (D-Conn.)
told reporters after the meeting that
Clinton "said a couple of times that he
does not favor the deployment of
ground forces and that it's not under
active consideration now, but that no
options should be removed from the
table - and that it's important for Mr.
Milosevic not to have any sense of cd4
fidence that he can suffer out or waWry
out the NATO air bombardment and-
expect us to walk away."
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) vwhen
asked whether the use of ground troops
is "off the table,' replied: "The presi-
dent said that it's not on the table, but he
did say that nothing is off the table and
that we must achieve our goal."
White House press secretary Joe
Lockhart told reporters later that
Clinton's views on ground troops have
not changed, but he did not dispute
Kerry's account of the meeting.
One of the most prominent support-
ers of preparing for ground troops, Sen.
John McCain (R-Ariz.) acknowledged
that an invasion of Yugoslavia to drive
Yugoslav troops out of Kosovo could'be
a grim business. "I know that should
Americans die in a land war with
Serbia, I will bear a considerable share
of the responsibility for their loss,' he
said in a speech in Washington.
But McCain repeated his belief that
the U.S. must win the conflict, ensuring
the return of ethnic Albanians to Kosovo
- where they formed 90 percent of the
prewar population of 1.8 million -
because the nation's "most important
values" have converged with the strate-
gic importance of maintaining American
credibility and NATO strength.
Gen. Wesley Clark, the NATO
supreme commander, said in Brussels
that the additional aircraft he requested
over the weekend represent only the
U.S. component of a major boost in
alliance strike power.
