Labour Behind the Label, National

Labour Behind the Label is a campaign that works to improve conditions and empower workers in the global garment industry. They believe that no-one should live in poverty for the price of a cheap t-shirt, and that a living wage and working without fear for your life are basic human rights. They do this in by raising public awareness and promoting collective action from consumers to push for change; by pressuring companies to take responsibility for worker’s rights throughout their supply chains; by working with trade unions worldwide to amplify garment workers’ demands; and by lobbying governments and policy makers to legislate and protect garment workers’ human rights. The overall focus of their work comes from garment workers themselves, and Labour Behind the Label provide a platform to amplify their voice and demands and to promote international solidarity. You can get involved and support the work of Labour Behind the Label in several ways, from attending one of their events, to getting involved in one of their campaign actions, to finding other activists in your local area and getting involved in your own social actions together.
