Asos signs global worker agreement

Asos has signed a global framework agreement with global trade union Industriall.

The arrangement will have both parties commit to adopting common strategies regarding worker rights on a country by country basis.

These include introducing confidential worker hotlines and linking Asos’s gender empowerment programme with Industriall’s own worker rights plan.

It will also ensure they develop joint methodologies in order to assess the impact of purchasing practices at the worker level of the supply chain.

The signing follows pressure on the brand to revamp its working conditions after it was linked to controversial employment agency Transline, whose zero-hour contract policy was called into question by MPs. Asos axed its contract with Transline earlier this year.
