1,138 garment workers died in the Rana Plaza factory collapse on April 24, 2013, the deadliest disaster in the history of the global garment industry.
Two years later and the 2,500 injured workers, 200 orphaned children, and hundreds more left destitute have received only 70 per cent of what is owed to them through the Rana Plaza Donors Trust Fund.
On April 24, unions and citizens are calling on the Children’s Place, Walmart and Benetton to fulfill their commitment to pay to the Rana Plaza Donors Trust Fund (set up by the International Labour Organization). These brands continue to refuse to pay the millions that they owe to this Fund.
Bangladeshi unions continue to mobilize and organize, calling for immediate ratification of key International Labour Organization conventions on Health and Safety protections for workers in the garment industry and in construction in Bangladesh.
