Union to act against inhumane work conditions
Sep '10
The Textile, Clothing and Footwear Union will take necessary actions against Australia's fashion retailers which employ workers, who work under inhumane conditions for long hours.

According to Jack Morel – the Union spokesman, solicitors are planning to lodge their objection in the Federal Court against 40 such producers and retailers from Queensland, who are using sweatshop labour.

He further adds that outsourced workers are required to be rewarded in the same way as the full-time factory workers. The outsourced workers and contractors must be given this information in simple language, before they start their work.

He said that a fair trial should be initiated to check the problem of sweatshop labour. It is appalling to see individuals losing their employment first and then to see them working from their residence for $5 an hour.

It is high time that, employers should start following the law or else they'll be tried in the law court, he concluded by saying.
