KUALA LUMPUR - US sportswear brand Under Armour and department store chain Macy's are among companies sourcing from Malaysian garment factories where an investigation found migrant worker conditions consistent with the use of forced labour.

The Transparentem NGO last month revealed it had interviewed around 45 workers from Bangladesh, Nepal and Indonesia employed by three apparel manufacturers in Malaysia and say that all reported conditions linked with forced labour by the International Labour Organization (ILO).

The initiative has now named the three manufacturers concerned and 10 brands and retailers which received at least one shipment from them between January 1st 2019, and October 22nd 2020, according to shipping records.
