Asia Floor Wage

AFWA's statement on the death of garment workers due to a fire at the Nandan Garment Factory, at Gujarat, India.

Asia Floor Wage Alliance supports the local trade unions and labour rights organizations’ holding global brands responsible for the egregious violations and the deaths of the workers. We demand that brands compensate for the death, injury, and loss of employment resulting from this fire on the basis of international standards on living wage and on workers’ pain and suffering.
