“We don't believe that buyers should determine wage levels for textile workers, we are positive to the peaceful consultations that have taken place over the past months between the parties on the labour market as well as to wages having been revised annually for the second year running. This is an important step forward towards fair living wages,” said the company on its website.
H&M has, on several occasions, pushed for higher wages in the garment industry in Cambodia. In 2014, the retailer sent a joint letter with several other brands urging the Cambodian government to ensure fair collective bargaining processes.
The company also expressed its support for increased wages in the country, including willingness to incorporate higher wage costs in its sourcing prices where needed. (HO)
