Two years after the deadline factory fire at Tazreen Fashions in Bangladesh killed more than 100 people and injured more than 300 others, an agreement has been reached on how victims will be compensated. IndustriALL Global Union, the Clean Clothes Campaign and retailer C&A, which had been manufacturing product at Tazreen, announced their agreement Monday, and C&A pledged to contribute “a significant amount” toward full and fair compensation for victims, and the final pledge will be made public once the plan is finalized. The payment package will compensate for income lost and medical assessments and treatment. Now the agreement for a compensation scheme has been reached, campaigners are calling on all the brands that sourced from Tazreen Fashions to pay into the fund.
