International Actions

Because the profit of Cort Guitars depends so much on international buyers and markets, Cort workers and their supporters have traveled overseas to global instrument trade fairs and conventions to publicize the illegal actions of Cort and to pressure the companies that subcontract from them to demand Cort to respect basic worker rights.
