Action Update: Volume 31

Find out what Labour Behind the Label have been up to in our bi-annual Action Update.

This year has been a hard year for many, not least for garment workers who have been bearing the brunt of the economic impact of the Covid-19 crisis. In this issue we will be sharing what we have been doing in the past six months and how our work is supporting workers to claim their rights. This includes our work calling out boohoo and their poor practices in Leicester and the #PayYourWorkers campaign where we are asking Primark to tell us if they have paid their workers. We will also share our Black Friday action, news related to our current urgent appeals and our upcoming matched giving campaign where each donation up to £4k will be matched!

Report: Boohoo & COVID-19: The people behind the profit

Emerging evidence indicates that conditions in Leicester’s factories, primarily producing for Boohoo, are putting workers at risk of COVID-19 infections and fatalities.

Factories in Leicester are no stranger to illegal working conditions, with numerous reports over the years showing low pay – as little as £3 – and blatant intimidation of vulnerable workers. Now however, emerging evidence indicates that conditions in Leicester’s factories, primarily producing for Boohoo, are putting workers at risk of COVID-19 infection and fatality as some factories have remained open for production during the lockdown, whilst others are now re-opening.
