Fashion Retailers Refuse To Compensate Victims Of Bangladesh Factory Collapse
The labor nonprofit organizations demand compensation for the Rana Plaza disaster victims.
In April 2013, the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh collapsed killing 1,127 people and injuring thousands more. The majority of the victims were female workers making apparel for the UK retailers, such as Benetton, Bonmarché, Mango, Matalan and Primark.
According to waronwant.org, “many of the companies that sourced from the garment factories in the Rana Plaza still haven’t offered compensation to the victims. Benetton and Mango didn’t even attend an international meeting in September with trade unions to discuss compensation.”
UK high street companies all acknowledged recent apparel production with the factories in the Rana Plaza building in Bangladesh.
“Thousands of people now face a bleak future, unable to work or having lost the main earner for their family,” states waronwant.org. “We need to let these companies know that we won’t forget, and that we will continue to expose their failure to compensate the people who made their clothes.”
