NASCIMENTO, Cristiane Mano do  y  SILVA, Minelle E.. The role of formalization in the insertion of social indicators in the supply chain of the popular garnment sector. Gest. Prod. [online]. 2020, vol.27, n.4, e4708.  Epub 27-Jul-2020. ISSN 1806-9649.

Under the supply chain sustainability debates and seeking to reduce the theoretical gap related to the social sustainability dimension, this research aims to analyze the relation between formalization and the insertion of social indicators in the supply chain of the popular garment sector in Fortaleza-CE. Using the case study strategy, 20 interviews were carried out with enterprises, direct suppliers and outsourced suppliers to cover the direct supply chain. Hence, were analyzed three categories - social responsibility, health and safety, and supplier development - and their 15 indicators. The results indicate that the formalization impacts on the insertion of social indicators, mainly in the category of health and safety. In addition, it was identified the possibility of informal work, even in the formalized companies, which demonstrates the need for a new look at this variable. With empirical demonstration, this study contributes to the study of social indicators in the supply chain and draws attention to informal labour relations in the local context.
