TIRUPUR – Workers’ rights organisations have called on fashion brands and retailers to join H&M in signing the Dindigul Agreement, which was introduced earlier this year with the ambition of eliminating gender-based violence and harassment (GBVH) in Indian garment manufacturing facilities.  

The Tamil Nadu Textile and Common Labour Union (TTCU), the Asia Floor Wage Alliance (AFWA), and Global Labor Justice-International Labor Rights Forum (GLJ-ILRF) created the agreement following the death of Jeyasre Kathiravel, who was reportedly murdered by her supervisor.

When reporting workplace problems leads brands to pull orders, working women are left to choose between sexual harassment or unemployment.  All brands who say they want their supply chain free of gender-based violence and harassment now have a clear choice to source from units covered by the Dindigul agreement or to talk with us about its expansion,” said Jennifer Rosenbaum, executive director of the GLJ-ILRF.
