TEA strongly reacts against Primark charges

Primark, the second biggest retail chain of UK, has recently sacked three suppliers from Tirupur, Tamil Nadu for using child labour. The garment retailer responded after being informed from the British investigation agency. They believe that, the Indian suppliers had allegedly sub-contracted embroidery and sequin work to children who worked from home.

Reacting strongly against the allegation A Shaktivel, President, Tirupur Exporters Association (TEA) informed Fibre2fashion, “Three exporters had given some work to refugee people with an aim of providing livelihood to the family. It was not given to the girl but she was sitting with her parents and this was noticed by NGO people who misunderstood the whole situation.”

Mr Shaktivel further asserted, “In the whole process of garment making child labourers are not used at all in any of the mills. This action of Primark is not going to do any harm to the industry, as orders from only three units have been cancelled and overseas buyers are working with Tirupur exporter since last 25 years, so they are also aware of the fact.”

TEA is sure to come out from this difficult situation soon as this accusation is baseless according to them.
