COLOMBO – Sri Lanka’s Joint Apparel Association Forum (JAAF) has criticised the Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) for including what it says are inaccurate industry figures in its recent report, ‘Still Un(der) Paid’. 

In particular, the industry body believes that the number of workers, job losses and the extent of underpayment cited in the paper is incorrect. 

Christie Miedema, CCC’s campaign and outreach coordinator, explained: “In an opaque and complex industry like the garment industry, with various definitions of who is a garment worker, as well as a prevalence of unregistered work, we often had to choose between competing numbers from different sources.”
