Brands and retailers must respect labour rights and pay their workers. We are calling on brands and retailers to:
Pay the workers who make their clothes their full wages for the duration of the pandemic;
Make sure workers are never again left penniless if their factory goes bankrupt, by signing onto a negotiated severance guarantee fund; and
Protect workers’ right to organise and bargain collectively.
