DHAKA - In the run-up to the eighth anniversary of the Rana Plaza garment factory disaster, workers' rights campaigners are calling for a new international, legally-binding agreement on workplace safety in the garment industry.

The Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC), trade unions and other groups are concerned that the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh, which has been credited with hugely improving factory safety since Rana Plaza, is set to end.

The Accord has already been replaced on the ground in Bangladesh by a new body, the Readymade Sustainability Council (RSC), but the legal agreement behind it remains in effect until May 31.
