Labor rights concerns at BJ&B were first publicized by student anti-sweatshop activists in 1998 when workers from the factory visited college campuses as part of the students’ effort to promote the adoption of university codes of conduct. In late 2001, the WRC received a complaint from workers at BJ&B alleging that they had been fired in retaliation for their efforts to form a trade union at the factory. The WRC found that the dismissals had in fact been unlawful and contacted licensees in early 2002.
