Become an Affiliate

We are proud to be an integral part of the global labour movement with a strong track record of working collaboratively with unions and workers. But we need your support to continue this work. If you are an organisation such as a Trade Union body or an NGO and would like to show your support for Labour Behind the Label’s campaign, please consider becoming an affiliate.

Why affiliate to Labour Behind the Label?

With brands becoming ever more powerful in the global economy and able to set wages with little transparency in their supply chains, it falls to garment workers to push back and fight for better working conditions. Garment workers and their unions are at the forefront of the struggle for worker rights. Many have risked their liberty and some have lost their lives in their attempts to claim basic human rights. These include the freedom of association, peaceful assembly, the right to a Living Wage and even the right to life.


Wolverhampton UNISON takes international issues seriously but also recognises the need for our members to see how these issues are directly relevant to their lives. In supporting Labour Behind the Label’s campaign to defend and promote the rights of garment workers, we believe we can engage our predominantly female membership in making the links and support Labour Behind the Label in its direct contribution to international solidarity.

Dave Auger, UNISON Deputy Branch Secretary
