A broad coalition of unions, worker centers, NGOs and other advocates have come together to develop and advance a proposal for a legally binding and enforceable wage agreement, and are
seeking your active involvement and support.
This proposal was developed by three networks:
Asia Wage Floor Alliance
The Asia Floor Wage Alliance(AFWA)is an Asian labour-led global labour and social alliance across garment-producing
countries in Asia and consumer regions of USA and Europe. Founded in 2007, AFWA builds regional unity among Asian garment unions to overcome the limitations of country-based struggles in
global production networks and holds global fashion brands accountable. AFWA’s historic cross-border living wage formulation for Asian garment workers is also the only women-centered
formulation that takes into account unpaid care costs; AFWA builds leadership of women garment workers to lead struggles for decent work at national and international levels and is committed
to an expansive notion of employment relationships that includes home workers.
Clean Clothes Campaign(CCC)is a global network dedicated to improving working conditions and empowering
workers in the global garment and sportswear industries. Since 1989, CCC has worked to ensure that the fundamental rights of workers are respected. CCC educates and mobilises consumers,
lobbies companies and governments, and offers direct solidarity support to workers as they fight for their rights and demand better working conditions. CCC brings together trade unions and
NGOs covering a broad spectrum of perspectives and interests, such as women’s rights, consumer advocacy and poverty reduction.
The Worker-driven Social Responsibility Network(WSRN)is a network of worker organizations, allies, and technical advisors that work
together to promote an effective and innovative paradigm for protecting fundamental human rights in corporate supply chains. This approach, known as Worker-driven Social Responsibility,
emerged out of worker-led efforts, including the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in the Bangladesh garment sector and the Fair Food Program in the US agricultural sector. The
multi-disciplinary WSR Network was created to develop and implement a strategy to expand the model into other sectors and regions. The Network’s goal is to build understanding of the
model among a wide range of relevant actors, provide support and resources for worker-led efforts to replicate the model, and shift the paradigm to establish the model as the baseline for
workers’ rights programs in global supply chains.
