Stand With Her

Stand in solidarity with garment workers 

Right now, clothes you buy from UK high street brands like H&M, Zara and UNIQLO are made by millions of garment workers who work up to 18 hours a day in dangerous factory conditions for poverty pay. Corporations are driving the global race for higher profits and lower costs, which exploits the mainly women workers across countries such as Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

 

Yet garment workers are fighting back. We partner with incredibly brave women and unions leading the fight. 

 

You can help. 

 

Sahera and Mousumi established a factory level union against all odds. Sahera fought against the terrible treatment she faced by factory supervisors but couldn’t bear to see others mistreated so she started a union and organised her fellow workers.

 

 “The only option is for us to improve our situation together, we can’t do it alone.” - Mousumi
