PORT-AU-PRINCE - More than 1,100 garment workers are sharing a US$1 million payout from Tommy Hilfiger and Calvin Klein owner PVH following the closure of their factory a year ago.

PVH, one of several brands which sourced from the Vald’or factory in Port-au-Prince, agreed to pay the money to cover missed severance pay and pension contributions after involvement by the Worker Rights Consortium NGO.

Most of the workers are receiving the equivalent of more than six months’ wages, and some are receiving more than a year’s pay, in what is described as a rare intervention by a global brand.
