No More Operating in the Dark!
On the fourth anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster, some of Canada’s largest retailers continue to fall short in providing the transparency and accountability needed to ensure safety and good working conditions for garment workers in Bangladesh.
On April 24, 2013, the Rana Plaza clothing factory in Bangladesh collapsed, killing 1,129 garment workers and injuring thousands of others. The factory made clothing sold in Canada.
Four years later, the Canadian Tire family of retailers such as Mark’s and Sport Chek, which source clothes from 67 factories in Bangladesh, still do not publicly report the names and addresses of the factories they use. That means we can’t check to see if they have made the building repairs needed to make workplaces safe for thousands of workers.
Tell Mark’s, Sport Chek and their parent company that operating in the dark and keeping factories hidden from public scrutiny is unacceptable.
No more operating in the dark!
