We stand in solidarity with garment workers around the world to demand that global brands take immediate action to stop union busting in their supplier factories. 

Today, the Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) global network, in which MSN is an active member, is supporting IndustriALL Global Union’s call for a Global Day of Action against union busting in the garment industry. The Covid-19 pandemic has provided management at garment factories around the world with an excuse to dismiss union leaders and members and close unionized factories.

In a tremendous precedent-setting victory, the union at the Rui-Ning factory in Myanmar has signed an agreement with factory management and the global brand Inditex (Zara) to reinstate the union president and, once the factory resumes hiring, other dismissed union members. This win follows a three and a half months long struggle sparked in early April by the dismissal of 324 workers, of which 298 were union members.
