Inditex renews agreement to protect supply chain workers

Zara parent company Inditex has renewed an agreement designed to protect the rights of workers directly or indirectly involved in its global operations.

The Spanish fast-fashion group has entered into a Global Framework Agreement (GFA) with IndustriALL Global Union, which represents 50 million workers in the mining, energy and manufacturing sectors across 140 countries.

The GFA sets standards for trade union rights, health and safety, and environmental practices in the supply chain.

Pablo Isla, chairman and chief executive of Inditex, said the renewed agreement would result in better living and working conditions in the fashion industry.

He added: “The collaboration between Inditex and IndustriALL has proven one of the most effective working tools in terms of identifying and prioritising lines of initiative that deliver continual improvements in the supply chain.”

IndustriALL general secretary Jyrki Raina said: “In promoting trade union values, the GFA empowers workers and improves lives, allowing even the most vulnerable people at the bottom of Inditex’s supply chain to be heard and protected.”
