Transcript STUDENTS Photos By The Daily Cougar AGAINST SWEATSHOPS You have probably seen their banners at the U.C. and the Underground, or some kind of chalk message advertising the organization around the campus sidewalks. Students Against Sweatshops (SAS), is an organization founded in June 2007 by PhD candidate Timothy O'Brien, to protect the rights of workers who work for university logo apparel licensed companies. UH SAS is also one of the most vocal groups on campus, in support of UH workers and for an increase in their living wages and better working conditions. The organization in 2008 successfully got the University to adopt a code of conduct for companies that license the UH logo. Members also want the University to stop working with Coca Cola because they say the company constantly violates the human rights of its workers and has a terrible environmental record. Members of Students Against Sweatshops and its sister organization, Students for Fair Trade, are some of the most vocal and confrontational leaders on campus who work tirelessly to get their message heard. Both organizations have filed several lawsuits against the University including suits for not showing them records from the Aramark contract, against Apparel Task Force, claiming their civil rights had been violated by the University, and free speech violations. The organization has held several press conferences, film screenings, and meetings to inform the UH community of the human rights violations occurring in sweatshops around the country and in impoverish nations.
