Garment workers

Join the worldwide coalition of Christian churches as we put pressure on retailers and campaign for the rights of garment workers in Bangladesh.

An ecumenical advocacy pack to press for the rights of garment workers in Bangladesh has been produced by the Anglican Alliance, in partnership with a new global coalition of churches who form the Church of Bangladesh Group.

It calls on Christians in developed countries, who benefit from the cut-price clothing produced in Bangladesh, to put pressure on retailers. And it provides a model letter to send to shops.

Launched on September 5th, the toolkit for advocacy will provide an action plan for the garment workers campaign, and real-life stories from workers in Bangladesh.

Bringing together churches from all walks of the Christian faith, the coalition have come together to urge the call for action for justice in the retail and garments industry.

The members of the group include:

Anglican Alliance
Church of Bangladesh
Church Mission Society
Church of Scotland
Council for World Mission
Diocese of Llandaff
Methodist Church in Britain
Oxford Mission
Us

In recent months the readymade garment manufacturing industry in Bangladesh has faced serious questions as working conditions similar to that of slavery have reached international headlines.
