H&M Agrees To Sign Fire Safety Agreement For Bangladesh Workers
H&M, the largest producer of clothing and accessories in Bangladesh has finally agreed to sign the "fire and building safety agreement" drafted by the independent Worker Rights Consortium.
Ever since the Bangladesh garment factory collapse and fire tragedy which the death toll has risen to 1,100 to date, the enraged public has taken to social media to vent their frustrations on several brands' facebook pages including H&M, Mango and Zara.
This inevitable move by retail giants H&M, Inditex group who owns Zara, Bershka, Pull&Bear, Netherlands-based C&A, British retailers Primark and Tesco to sign the Fire and Building safety agreement is just one step ahead but a good one in helping foster better workplace safety and workplace rights for the garment factory workers in Bangladesh.
Still, I and many others are waiting for Spanish retailer Mango and many other garment manufacturers to sign the fire and building safety agreement.
