Impact Report 2020/21

Impact Report 2020/21

This report looks at the impact that Labour Behind the Label has had during the financial year 2020/21.  A great deal of our work shifted to focus on the appalling negative impacts of Covid-19 – the virus itself as well as the resultant loss of wages, jobs, benefits and ongoing instability in the garment industry. We held big campaigns and lobbied brands to act.  As we are responding to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, worked on new and emerging human rights violations in the garment industry. There is unquestionable evidence that the fashion industry is profiting from and complicit in Uyghur forced labour in the Xinjiang region of China. We reponded to the military coup in Myanmar in February 2021, by calling on brands to publicly condemn the coup. We continued to campaign for greater transparency in the garment industry, and for living wages. We undertook 16 solidarity cases, and saw worker wins in Thailand, Romania and Myanmar.

It’s our birthday! Labour Behind the Label is 20 years old. In this issue, you can read about our 20 years of impact. We can also finally celebrate the signing of the International Accord, which follows its Bangladeshi predecessor in legally committing brands to work to improve factory safety. This is the culmination of an enormous campaign effort from workers and activists around the world. The Pay Your Workers campaign to get justice for garment workers following pandemic wage cuts is also making headway as Black Friday approaches. You can find out about our new exciting short film and activist toolkit, and more.
