Persuade Gap & Debenhams to sign up for factory safety

GAP Debenhams must sign Bangladesh safety accord

We’ve reported elsewhere about the 34 major companies that have already signed the global union Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh, in the aftermath of the horrific Rana Plaza disaster. And we’re urging people to help the families of the victims with our TUC Aid Dhaka Disaster Appeal.

But this weekend, we’re also asking you to persuade two other companies to sign up to the Accord and help ensure there are no further atrocities: Debenhams and Gap. Both are involved in discussions with IndustriALL and UNI Global – the worldwide textile and retail worker unions about signing the Accord. We think some public pressure could make the difference and get them to put their words into action.

Please sign our e-action, and encourage your friends, family and workmates to sign up too. We hope we can welcome both companies to the list of Accord-backing list soon.
