Stop the Killings - Sign the Agreement !
 
400 and many more workers killed in a factory collapse: Yet another tragedy in Bangladesh's garment industry


"Factory owners, Government, Buyers and BGMEA should take effective steps to make sure that in future not a single garment worker has to die in hazardous factories. We do not want to see such incident with workers returning to their home as dead body after they came to work. So, the garment factories should be developed as 'safe workplace'."
 
In joining the groundbreaking fire safety agreement as proposed by the ExChains campaign, international buyer companies could make a crucial contribution towards 'safe workplaces' and literally save lives.
