Lola SÁNCHEZ – Textile imports : MEPs call for rules to curb worker exploitation


We are cracking open transnational corporations’ impunity armour. Crimes like Rana Place putted on the table the production structure of structure of the garment industry, in which a lot of European companies are involved. Rana Plaza’s crime made clear that the Corporate Social Responsibility is not enough, since a lot of the companies which operated there, did have, at least on the paper that kind of Corporate Social Responsibility policies; but then, juridical it proved to be impossible to find who were responsible We would be ashamed in Europa if we knew and we saw with our own eyes the terrific labour and social standards which are applied in some countries when producing our cloth both the expensive one and the cheapest one. This situation must change, and that is why we are demanding to the European Commission that it legislates to oblige the garment industry companies to control their supply chain.
