Turkey: Zara to establish fund for workers left unpaid following closure of outsource factory

Customers in Istanbul reportedly found handwritten notes from Turkish workers in the pockets of in-store garments asking shoppers to back their campaign for better labour standards. The workers were employed by the manufacturer Bravo, which they say owes them three months of pay as well as severance allowance. Inditex, Zara's parent company, has now said it's working with trade unions and retailers Mango and Next on a fund to help workers affected.
