BUCHAREST - Garment workers at a Romanian factory, which makes clothes for leading brands including Zara owner Inditex, have received wages withheld during the early months of the coronavirus pandemic after a protest campaign went viral.

Workers at the Tanex factory in Bucharest, which also makes garments for Holy Fashion, Ted Baker, Massimo Dutti, Lancome and Kookai, were paid just €140 (US$165) a month - slightly more than half of their regular wage - at the start of the crisis.

Garment workers at Tandex claim they also suffered intimidation and harassment from factory bosses during the pandemic, as well as non-payment of mandatory social insurance contributions and overtime.
