Final report of complaint in Bangladesh at factory that supplies Tako
On 14 Augustus a local union SGSF (Sommilito Garments Sramik Federation), an affiliated member of IndustriAll, filed a complaint on behalf of a group of workers that was recently terminated by the factory. The case related to the labour standard ‘Legally binding employment relationship’ which is part of FWF’s Code of Labour Practices.
The complainant claimed that the factory fired a number of workers in the month of July 2014. The workers did not get their compensations. The union requested FWF to facilitate a negotiation for the union with the factory management on behalf of the workers.
FWF informed Takko Fashion about the case. Takko Fashion had responded immediately. Since the union wished to handle the case on its own, FWF decided not to conduct an investigation. FWF agreed to close the case, unless SGSF needs support again in the future.Download
