NEW DELHI – A group of workers’ rights organisations have called on fashion brands and retailers to establish to make a Supply-chain Relief Contribution (SRC), through which two per cent of their total sourcing budget from the preceding 12 months would be made available to garment workers struggling amidst the pandemic.  

Led by the Asia Wage Floor Alliance (AWFA), Women in Informal Employment: Globalizing and Organizing (WIEGO) and member organisations HomeNet South Asia (HNSA) and HomeNet South East Asia (HNSEA), the workers’ rights groups’ call to arms has been made with the ambition of supporting not only contracted factory staff but also the hundreds of thousands of people worldwide which are time-rated, piece-rated, subcontracted and home workers, and so have fallen out of focus.  

In Asia more than half of all factories subcontract aspects of production to smaller workshops and to homeworkers,” AFWA says. “We believe that brands are responsible for ensuring that all workers throughout their supply chains enjoy labour rights and are paid a living wage.”
