ENGLAND – A trade union leader in the UK says “it comes as no surprise” that fast fashion retailer Boohoo is at the centre of controversy surrounding supply chain factory conditions, having rejected its attempts to collaborate and address worker concerns surrounding health and safety.

“We received numerous enquiries from our members in their Burnley warehouse, concerned about their health and safety at the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak,” says Mike Aylward, USDAW divisional officer for the north west.

Boohoo has been linked to apparel manufacturing factories in Leicester which have been forced to work throughout the pandemic for as little as £3.50 an hour, claims they’re “shocked and appalled” to here. The Manchester brand has since appointed a leading barrister who specialises in business crime to head an independent investigation into pay and conditions at its supply factories in Leicester.
