This blog aims to collect daily information about how the new Coronavirus COVID-19 is influencing garment workers' rights in supply chains around the world. It will be updated as new information comes in from media and the Clean Clothes Campaign global network. Information is posted as it comes in from the network and cannot always be double-checked.
Eight years ago today, a fire in the Tazreen Fashions factory in Bangladesh trapped hundreds of workers in a building without fire exits. At least 112 workers died and many more were injured for life after jumping from upper floors. Despite receiving compensation for medical costs and loss of income per international standards, full justice is still outstanding, and a group of severely injured workers spend their days protesting to ask attention for their destitution.
The Clean Clothes Campaign global network will put pressure on apparel companies to take responsibility for worker wages in their supply chains with a global week of action. Actions in dozens of locations around the world will amplify the voices of workers whose wages were cut or jobs disappeared without compensation during the pandemic.
