BANGLADESH: Unions call for Rana Plaza donations
The Rana Plaza building collapse killed more than 1,100 people
More than 70 labour rights groups and unions have again called on clothing brands sourcing from Bangladesh to pay US$40m to victims of the Rana Plaza disaster before its first anniversary on 24 April.
In a letter, the organisations, including the Clean Clothes Campaign, more than 30 Bangladeshi organisations, and assocations from all over the world, call on the companies to pay into the Rana Plaza Donor Trust Fund, which aims to benefit survivors and the families of victims.
They say that $40m is needed to ensure that those affected can receive support for loss of income and medical expenses.
But they argue that all brands linked to Rana Plaza and Bangladesh should pay in and confirm their pledges to the International Labour Organization, which acts as trustee for the fund.
