COLOMBO - Workers' rights campaigners have published a new study on the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic in Sri Lanka where they claim brands, retailers and manufacturers are profiting at the expense of garment workers' health, employment security, and income.

Seven organisations - Clean Clothes Campaign, Labour Behind the Label, Maquila Solidarity Network, Solidarity Center, United Students Against Sweatshops, War on Want, and Workers United - co-authored the report.

It says the pandemic has had devastating effects on the wellbeing, health and rights of Sri Lanka’s 275,000 garment workers, the majority of whom are women who migrated from villages to the country’s garment hubs.
