AMSTERDAM - Labour rights organisations and trade unions are calling on apparel companies to guarantee that all workers in their supply chain will receive their legally mandated or regular wages and benefits, whichever is higher, during the COVID-19 crisis.

The Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC), which is leading the demand, says that garment workers are among those most economically vulnerable in the pandemic, due to structural inequalities in global garment supply chains.

By cancelling orders, delaying placement of new orders, or forcing discounts on goods already produced, apparel companies have created a situation where factories are unable to pay workers on time or at all, says the CCC.
