This report represents the work of the Canadian joint-union solidarity delegation’s travels to Bangladesh in June of 2019. The goal of the delegation was to continue its work with the Bangladesh Center for Workers’ Solidarity (BCWS) in support of garment workers in Bangladesh. The six-year partnership strives to advocate governments, employers, and international brands work together to improve the working conditions for the over four million garment sector workers in Bangladesh. With representatives from the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC), the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), United Steelworkers, (USW), the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF/FEESO), and the Centre international de solidarité ouvrière (CISO), the delegation represented a cross section of the Canadian labour movement.
