EU sources -Global Framework Agreement; H&M to encourage unionisation of entire production chain -November 04, 2015

Trade unions and management at Swedish garment retailer H&M have closed a global framework agreement (GFA) on working conditions and health and safety. The agreement explicitly encourages the unionisation of shops and plants across the supply chain, securing H&M management’s promise to safeguard workers’ rights in contracts with third parties. The agreement pays special attentions to health and safety in the garment industry and grants workers the right to refuse labour under unsafe conditions.
