We are petitioning River Island to uphold the internationally recognized human right of freedom of association and collective bargaining.
We are asking River Island to:
- Ensure all their factories adopt a ‘Freedom of Association Policy’ and issue 'Right to Organise' guarantees to workers in their own language.
- Regularly audit the ‘Freedom of Association Policy’, guaranteeing the policy has been effectively adopted and communicated
- Proactively create accessible and safe means by which workers can file complaints, with a transparent process for resolving complaints
- Require the signing of access agreements between factory management and local unions at supply factories
This petition is run by James Cobbett and Anna Jacklin with Tearfund's Emerging Influencers programme. www.tearfund.org/livingthedream
