Workers’ Rights Remain at the Heart of Alliance’s Efforts

.

Last week, the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety reaffirmed its commitment to ensure workers in the Bangladesh garment sector had a safe working environment and the ability to communicate safety concerns without the fear of retribution.  This had always been a core component of the Alliance members agreement, but the membership took the additional step to explicitly codify the right of workers to refuse unsafe work without the fear of retribution.  The capacity of workers to freely communicate safety issues with management is essential to achieving safe factories, and Alliance members are committed to ensuring this right is fully implemented and protected.
