ISLAMABAD – A new report from the Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) has accused leading fashion firms, such as H&M, Inditex, Bestseller and C&A, of obstructing the expansion of the International Accord for Health and Safety in the Textile and Garment Industry to Pakistan. 

The workers’ rights organisation believes the time is now for the expansion, which it’s hoped would address persistent factory hazards, such as those which led to the factory fire at Ali Enterprises in Karachi, where 250 people lost their lives.

Nasir Mansoor, general secretary of National Trade Union Federation in Pakistan, commented: “Workers deserve to feel safe and protected when going to work and it’s the responsibility of brands to ensure this as they are the ones profiting. Brands should stop delaying the expansion process and take immediate steps to make factories safer.”
