The international clothing companies Mango and Topshop have signed the renewed Accord on Fire and Building Safety, a legally binding agreement to improve workplace safety for garment workers in Bangladesh. The original accord was created after the Rana Plaza building collapse in Bangladesh in April 2013. The tragedy left 1,134 garment workers dead and over 2,000 workers injured.
Green America, International Labor Rights Forum, Clean Clothes Campaign, Maquila Solidarity Network and United Students Against Sweatshops have been urging Abercrombie & Fitch, Topshop, and Mango to sign the renewed accord since the original expires in 2018. Thank you to everyone who has taken action with us to push Mango and Topshop to make this step.
