Progress in remediation of Bangla apparel units: Alliance

Nov '16
The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety (Alliance) said together with the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety's (Accord), it has made noticeable progress in improving the fire and safety standards of Bangladesh apparel factories. Nearly 1.3 million workers in Alliance compliant factories are safer than prior to the creation of the Alliance.

In a statement, the Alliance added that it remains laser-focused on intensifying the progress of making these factories safer.

The statement was issued in response to a report by the International Labour Rights Forum, Clean Clothes Campaign, Worker Rights Consortium and Maquila Solidarity Network, that according to the Alliance, misrepresents and oversimplifies the complexities of the Alliance's and Accord's efforts to improve worker safety in Bangladesh.

While analysing and inspecting the factory remediation progress, the Alliance noted that it has suspended 101 factories from the Alliance list, for failing to make sufficient progress on remediation, which indicates a high level of validation.

On the matter of maintaining transparency, the statement observed that both the Alliance and Accord officials meet on a monthly basis to review any and all concerns in shared factories.

According to the Alliance, the situation on the ground in Bangladesh is complex and challenging and expects that the remediation work will be largely completed by 2018, as originally planned. (AR)
