Formation of factory union stifled
Following the formation of a factory level union, five workers were sacked at Tokyo Mode Ltd, located north of the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka. In order to end this labour rights violation, the Clean Clothes Campaign contacted the main buyers of the company. One of the buyers mediated between factory management, the union and a supporting labour rights NGO in Bangladesh.
Unfortunately, the meeting was a failure and resulted in a deadlock. The factory union and the supporting civil organisation are continuing to demand union recognition and the implementation of labour laws.
