Primark's Code of Conduct clearly states that all workers have the right to join or form trade unions of their own choosing and to bargain collectively - the current pandemic has not altered our commitment to this principle, or any others in our Code. We take any suggestion that our Code has been breached very seriously and will always investigate.
We were aware of this allegation and an investigation is already underway. We are in contact with both the union and the supplier (Huabo Times), who has entered into dialogue with the union and the Ministry of Labour, to determine further details.
Once our investigation has concluded, if a breach has been identified we will work with the supplier on remediation.
