Thanks to global campaigns led by labour organisations and supported by hundreds of thousands of people around the world, Primark has followed H&M and Zara’s Inditex by signing up to the Bangladesh Safety Accord.
This is a crucial victory in the fight for companies to take responsibility for the workers who make our clothes.
Safe working conditions for garment workers must be assured.
A tragedy like the Rana Plaza disaster cannot happen again.
