Why we are staying away from H&M’s living wage summit in Cambodia
by Neva Nahtigal published 10-12-2018 last modified 11-12-2018 06:21 — filed under: , , ,
Clean Clothes Campaign International office declined an invitation to the “Fair living wage summit” that H&M is organizing on 11 December in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. We want to make sure that our absence is not misrepresented at the summit or in other situations and are therefore sharing some background that led to that decision.

by Neva Nahtigal published 27-11-2018 last modified 27-11-2018 14:00 — filed under: , ,
The ongoing #TurnAroundHM global week of action has shown the growing resentment over H&M’s broken living wage commitment.

#WeDemandTk16000: International solidarity with the workers in Bangladesh
by Neva Nahtigal published 12-10-2018 last modified 12-10-2018 09:03 — filed under: , ,
The struggle for a minimum wage in Bangladesh that would enable a decent life continues. Following a series of public rallies, press conferences and round tables, a number of workers are on a hunger strike today. This action, organized by the National Garment Workers Federation (NGWF), an IndustriALL global union affiliate, should serve as a stark reminder that the announced minimum wage of 8,000 taka will leave many workers and their families hungry and unable to cover other basic living cost.

Outrageous new minimum wage announced in Bangladesh
by Neva Nahtigal published 21-09-2018 last modified 21-09-2018 09:19 — filed under:
In a climate of fear and intimidation and after months of delays, Bangladeshi authorities have announced the new monthly minimum wage of 8,000 taka (USD 95) for the 4.5 million workers in the garment sector in Bangladesh. This amount shows complete disregard for legitimate workers' unions and for the need to set wages through social dialogue.

by Neva Nahtigal published 28-08-2018 last modified 21-09-2018 09:20 — filed under: , ,
The Minimum Wage Board in Bangladesh will reconvene on Wednesday, 29 August, to set the new statutory minimum wage for workers in Bangladesh’s garment industry. Ahead of this meeting Clean Clothes Campaign, the International Labor Rights Forum and Maquila Solidarity Network jointly urged major brands sourcing from Bangladesh to publicly support workers’ demands. These include the minimum wage of 16,000 taka, a statutory framework to govern pay grades and promotion and other welfare measures. Inditex – the owner of Zara, Bershka, Pull and Bear and several other labels – was the first to publicly respond in a positive manner.

Clean Clothes Campaign condemns employers' minimum wage proposal for workers in Bangladesh and urges brands to take action
by Neva Nahtigal published 20-07-2018 last modified 21-09-2018 09:21 — filed under: , ,
The Bangladesh garment industry employers’ association has shown utmost disregard for workers’ wellbeing and for their lives outside of garment factories. On Monday, 16 July, the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) submitted a proposal to the relevant public authority for the workers’ minimum wage to be set at 6,360 taka (about 75 USD). Not only does this amount not meet any living wage standard for Bangladesh – it does not even remedy employers’ disregard for the legally required increases over the past five years.
