Abandoned Cambodian workers deserve justice from Nygard, M&S, Bonmarché

Clean Clothes Campaign

Over 200 Cambodian garment workers, the vast majority of them women, face severe economic hardship over one year after their employer, Chung Fai Knitwear, suddenly closed its factory and failed to pay wages owing, legally-required severance pay and other benefits.

Shipping records and worker testimonies reveal that the factory was making clothing for Canadian fashion brand, Nygard, as well as for Marks and Spencer and Bonmarché.

MSN and allies at Workers United and the Clean Clothes Campaign are calling on the three brand buyers to act responsibly and pay the workers the money they are owed.
