Our new short film is an intimate portrayal of the long-term devastation that severance theft causes for garment workers and their families.
Two women speak for the first time on camera about their experiences after being laid off from factories they were once dependent on.
Help us call on Uniqlo to pay the severance they owe & help us call on all brands to #EndWageTheft in their supply chains by committing to an enforceable agreement on wages and severance.
Call on brands to #PayYourWorkers & #RespectLabourRights

Brands must sign the new International Accord to ensure safe factories
The new International Accord announced by brands and unions in August will continue the important work to make factories in Bangladesh safe and will expand the work to other countries!
Check our brand tracker to find out whether your favourite brand has signed the Accord. If not, please tell them on social media to #ProtectProgress & #SignTheAccord.
Or you can send an e-mail to brands that have failed to show they care about workers' lives.
Expand the International Accord!
The new International Accord will expand to at least one country beyond Bangladesh. We call upon brands to do so swiftly, because workers can't wait. Pakistan would be a logical first choice, as labour leaders and workers there have been calling for a new Accord for years.
Read more about the Ali Enterprises fire of 2021 and its aftermath in this special report by The News on Sunday, with contributions from many CCC network members.
To find out why the expansion of the Accord is so urgent, please have a look at this timeline of fatal and near fatal factory incidents in the garment and textile sector since the start of this year.
Earning a living wage is a human right but garment workers in Europe struggle to make ends meet on their current wages.
We developed a benchmark for living wages in European countries that reflects the reality of garment production in Europe.

We are campaigning to #EndUyghurForcedLabour and stop brands profiting from #ForcedLabourFashion !
