Planet Labor, 24 April 2020, n°11877 -

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.
