by Christie Miedema published 21-04-2017 last modified 25-04-2017 08:59
[April 2017] Founded in 2013, three weeks after the deadliest disaster in the history of the global apparel industry, the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety has made factories safer for more than two-and-a-half million garment workers. The improvements in structural, fire, and electrical safety accomplished under the Accord have helped avert further factory fires and building collapses in an industry long plagued by grossly unsafe working conditions. As witness signatories to the Accord, we offer in this memorandum a concise assessment of the Accord's performance to date and our concrete recommendations for the continuation of the Accord for another five years, beyond its current 2018 expiration date.

File Octet Stream Four years after Rana Plaza: Steps in the right direction but a lot remains to be done
by Christie Miedema published 21-04-2017 last modified 04-05-2017 14:11
[April 2017] Monday, 24 April, marks the fourth anniversary of the collapse of the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh, the deadliest disaster in the garment industry. The workers who died that day paid the ultimate price of the low cost, cut-throat industry that continues to put vast profits ahead of the lives and dignity of the women and men it employs. As we are approaching this tragic anniversary, our thoughts are with those who died, the families they left behind and with the survivors who continue to suffer the physical and psychological scars of this terrible disaster. We also use this moment to call on brands, governments and employers to defend the improvements won after Rana Plaza, and to go much further in tackling roots causes of the disaster, including the repression of workers rights and the lack of transparency in the industry.
