Clothing brands and retailers including Adidas, C&A, H&M Group, International Apparel Federation, Inditex, M&S, Primark, PVH Corporation, Ralph Lauren, Tchibo, VF Corporation, Under Armour and Zalando SE are participating in an initiative, along with the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), the International Organisation of Employers (IOE), and IndustriALL Global Union, that aims to support the international textile supply chain amid the economic disruption caused by the Covid-19 crisis. Through the initiative, which is supported by the International Labour Organization (ILO), the parties commit to cooperating with governments and financial institutions to mobilise funding that can help manufacturers, particularly in Asia, to keep their businesses up and running. The funding will help firms pay wages as well as assist income-support and job-retention schemes to address the impact of the crisis.
