Workers unite!

As workers around the world engage in strikes and protests for higher wages and better working conditions, H&M, one of the largest retailers in the world, has begun steps to improve working conditions for employees that make H&M products. One of H&M’s projections is to get factory employees representation by trade unions that can negotiate better working conditions for factory employees.

“The work is at the top of our agenda and we stay true to our collaborative approach and methodical way of working, making it possible to take important steps forward,” H&M said. “In 2018, the goal is to have democratically elected worker representatives in place at supplier representing 50 per cent of our product volume. Our collaboration within the Global Framework Agreement—pushing the development forward—was converted to a permanent agreement. H&M became an official supporter of the Global Deal partnership,” H&M details.

H&M has factories in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, India, China, Turkey, and Myanmar that will be participating in this worker initiative. “In 2018, the goal is to have improved wage management systems in place at suppliers representing 50 per cent of our product volume,” the H&M group contends.
