Bowdoin Bookstore’s Vendor Code of Conduct:
The Bowdoin Bookstore requires vendors to supply a code of conduct demonstrating that they are socially responsible, in accordance with the standards set by the Fair Labor Association. Copies of individual vendors’ codes of conduct are kept on file in the Bowdoin Bookstore in David Saul Smith Union. We attempt to ensure that all of our vendors have pledged to abide by the FLA’s Workplace Code of Conduct, developed based on International Labour Organization (ILO) Standards.
