The future of activism for electronics workers
In this chapter, we critically review the global sustainable electronics movement’s strategies for change, including industry codes of conduct; multi-stakeholder consultations that develop regulatory and legal standards for labor and health; market-based campaigns to pressure companies to change; and empowering workers to organize themselves through workplace associations to demand better wages and safer working conditions. We argue that the last strategy is especially promising for protecting electronics’ workers’ health and rights in the future.
