FAIR TRADE FEDERATION PRINCIPLES 1.

   Posted by: admin   in

Federation members fully commit to the following principles: 1. Create Opportunities for Economically and Socially Marginalized Producers Fair Trade is a strategy for poverty alleviation and sustainable development. Members create social and economic opportunities through trading partnerships with marginalized producers. Members place the interests of producers and their communities as the primary concern of their enterprise.

 Here is Fair Trade Principle Number One: “The interests of producers and their communities as the primary concern of their enterprise.”

Notwithstanding two up-close and personal inspections in recent years, Renice Jones does not “get it” that these are poor people she has as her craftsworker suppliers and that their primary concern is to put food on the table each week.

Global Crafts does NOT promote Artcamp’s jewelry as she would if she really wanted to sell it. She acts as if she expects it to sell itself. 

She seems to want to phase them out and so she uses her buying power and her monopoly position to keep the price at a very low level until they have depleted their stocks of casting alloy, abalone shell, and lapidary stone. In 2017 – Global Crafts did NO promotion of Artcamp’s jewelry, no investment in the group, no new tools, even though these craftswomen are her trusted suppliers of seven years (with a perfect delivery record and no unresolved quality issues):

Instead of promoting their jewelry, as if she really wanted to sell it, she has conspired with other Fair Trade dealers, with the purpose of keeping these mexican craftswomen out of the Fair Trade market. I do NOT think that one could fairly state that Global Crafts has had the interests of the producer at the heart of their business in this case and I appeal to the Fair Trade Federation to apply Principle Number 1.

The GMails back and forth between Global Craft and Artcamp the past seven years tell the whole story: the interests of the producer have been demoted,
rather than advanced by this company. The producer group is made to serve the interests of the Fair Trade dealer; the exact opposite of Fair Trade Principle #1

The closer anybody examines the GMail record, the more clearly they will see the pattern of exploitation.

I hope and pray that reason and justice prevail here and that the Fair Trade Federation order Global Crafts to pay what they owe,
like they should, and to pay the girl for the work her brother did. 

Global Crafts was walking away from them, not sharing their planning with them.
That unwarned-of 35% drop in orders in 2017 was doubly destructive to the social fabric of the cooperative society,
because everyone was caught unaware when the agreement to purchase 5000usd$/month was unilaterally abandoned by Global Crafts in January 2017
and the turn-down that followed, as Global Crafts took on new jbusiness opportunities.

The new cooperative president, Emi had just formally asked Renice on December 20th – 30th, 2016, in a series of emails,
if there were any way the service or the quality of the cooperative might be improved for the coming year.
Emi wrote Renice that she had been taught the importance of  communication with the customer in the business school training she had received from the government at the time she got a grant to buy her sewing machines.

But Renice only answered her: “No. Everything is fine”.

So, Emi reported to the women at the year-end members meeting that the customer confirms that everything is just fine.

Two weeks later, the surprise order reduction came, included with a warning “you are lucky to have an order this month” (paraphrased).

This order reduction was entirely deliberate; it broke a covenant that had been honored for two years of a $5000usd/month minumum order.

These artisans never asked for any raise in prices, even though prices were always going up for items they need to buy.
In January 2017, the price of everything in Mexico went up 25% (look up “Gasolinazo” in Wikipedia)
The artisans need work.  they thought they could hold on to their jobs by performing perfectly with regard to quality and deliver.
Taking their work away from them in this way is just not right, because only Global Crafts is in the market.
They can’t speak for themselves or defend their own interests, thats why the Fair Trade company customer should take a real interest
in the well-being of this community (after having sold a million dollars worth of Artcamp’s product over seven years)

“Members place the interests of producers and their communities as the primary concern of their enterprise.”

Hello?

Thus, Global Crafts practices in this case violated Fair Trade Principle Number One

I applaud Fair Trade Federation in advance for siding with the authentic artisans in this case
and, if you will kindly help the village artisans be protected from the worst practices of commercial dealers,
I assure you that act will be sincerely appreciated here, and reciprocated to you in the form of genuine goodwill.

For the record, I think both Kevin and Renice are good people. They are blind to the needs of the craftspeople
and if they knew more they wouldn’t have made the decisions they did. I’m pretty sure in fact that they are both decent
and that, in a way, this is a misunderstanding, one that, if handled constructively, could still have a net positive outcome.
