On the first day of a wave of international actions, Clean Clothes Campaign announces its support for the demand of a coalition of Cambodian unions that the multinational brands must ensure a minimum wage of US $177. Tomorrow, thousands of women and men in Cambodia and around the world, will wear stickers saying “brands must provide a living wage for workers!” in factories which produce apparel for major global brands such as H&M, Inditex, Levi's and GAP.
From 23 to 27 November 2015, Shahida Parveen and Farhat Fatima from Pakistan will visit Berlin to draw attention to the global campaign demanding KiK provide long term compensation to the families affected by the Ali Enterprises factory fire in 2012. Shahida Parveen, a widow of one of the workers who was killed in the fire, intends to deliver her #MakeKikPay petition to KiK representatives during her stay in Germany. She will be accompanied by Farhat Fatima from the Pakistan Institute of Labour Education and Research (PILER), an organisation that signed a legal agreement with KiK for a negotiated settlement of long-term compensation to the survivors and victims’ families of the Ali enterprises tragedy.
Turkish workers for the handbag brand Mulberry, and activists globally who supported their cause, are hailing a 'tremendous victory' after winning a campaign to uphold human rights in their factory.

Clean Clothes Campaign calls on the government of the Philipines to carry out a full and detailed investigation into the circumstances surrounding a fire at a Manila slipper factory, which killed at least 72 workers on May 13th 2015.

It's been long enough.
