Clean Clothes Campaign urges brands and the Government of Bangladesh for a permanent solution
Author: Clean Clothes Campaign, Published on: 25 September 2017
"Brands need to step up on compensation after new factory fire in Bangladesh", 24 Sep 2017
At least six people were killed in a textile mill fire in Bangladesh... In order not to leave them destitute without just compensation for employment injury, it is imperative that brands, employers and the Government of Bangladesh step up to improve access to and provision of remedy in the short-term and by moving forward towards a permanent solution with adopting the National Employment Injury Scheme... Despite the frequent occurrence of employment injury in Bangladesh, there is still no consistent approach or permanent solution to provide remedy for those unable to work after sustaining an injury or for the families left behind when workers are killed...Brands have an obligation to ensure access and provision of remedy as part of exercising due diligence within their supply chain... Clean Clothes Campaign calls upon all brands producing in Bangladesh to sign the new Accord and to listing all their suppliers producing garment and textile related products. Full disclosure of their supply chains will help brands and retailers meet their due diligence requirements under international standards and most importantly can save workers’ lives.
