On the occasion of the World Day for Decent Work, the Global Union representing workers in the textile, clothing and leather sector is asking leading brands and retailers in the sector what action they are taking to ensure that the workers who produce their goods earn a living wage.

ITGLWF's late Neil Kearney, former General Secretary of the International Textile, Garment and Leather Workers’ Federation: “Over the past decade most brands and retailers have introduced codes of conduct governing the conditions under which the items they market are made. Many codes now provide for the payment of a living wage, yet almost nowhere is this happening. “Instead, most brands and retailers continue to source from manufacturers that pay starvation wages, force workers to work extremely long hours just to make ends meet and deny workers the right to organise and bargain collectively to improve their wages and conditions.
