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

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.

This issue looks at the potential for devastation as the Bangladesh Transition Accord, protecting the safety of Bangladeshi garment workers, is in peril due to a High Court injunction to remove it, jeopardising the safety of millions of workers. Remaining in Bangladesh, we look at the desperate action workers are taking, including going on hunger strike, to demand an increase to the minimum wage. There is information on the UK’s home-grown sweatshop factories in Leicester, as well as our Black Friday action in the face of H&M’s failed promise to pay a living wage. We also celebrate the success of our Invisible Threads fundraising Art Auction, which raised an amazing £2,800.
