This blog aims to collect daily information about how the new Coronavirus COVID-19 is influencing garment workers' rights in supply chains around the world. It will be updated as new information comes in from media and the Clean Clothes Campaign global network. Information is posted as it comes in from the network and cannot always be double-checked.
The Clean Clothes Campaign global network calls for the immediate release of labour activist Myo Myo Aye, who was arrested in Yangoon on 15 April 2021. The leader of the Solidarity of Trade Unions in Myanmar (STUM) was forcibly taken from her office by the army yesterday. Four cars drove up to her office and took her to a police station for interrogation where she was detained overnight.
The Clean Clothes Campaign Network condemns the silence of garment brands, including Aldi North, Lindex and Marks & Spencer, on the military in Myanmar committing atrocities since the military coup at the start of February. Brands such as H&M, Next, C&A, Primark and Benetton, who have suspended placing new orders, still have a clear responsibility towards workers to ensure wages and severance are being paid.
Clean Clothes Campaign is taking another step in the continuous struggle to improve the working conditions and empower workers in the global garment and sportswear industries by introducing the Europe Floor Wage: a cross-border base living wage benchmark for Central, East and Southeast Europe.
