Bangladesh: C&A Foundation pledges ‘significant amount’ towards full compensation for those injured and the families of the dead

Dutch retailer C&A has agreed to pay compensation to victims of the Tazreen disaster two years after a fire at the Bangladeshi clothing factory killed more than 120 people. C&A Foundation, a charitable group linked to the retailer, pledged to contribute a “significant amount” towards full compensation for those injured in the fire and the families of the dead in a deal with global union IndustriALL and the garment workers’ pressure group Clean Clothes Campaign. Only C&A and Hong Kong-based group Li & Fung have so far put up funds to support former workers at the factory.
