Spanish giant Mango signs onto Bangladesh Accord

RMG Times Desk Report: Finally Spanish giant fashion brand Mango has signed onto the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh while the original Accord will expire in May of 2018. Over 120 companies, including H&M, Zara, American Eagle Outfitters, and now Mango have signed on to a 3-year continuation of the program.

In April 2013, all eyes turned to Bangladesh following the horrific Rana Plaza building collapse. This preventable disaster left 1,134 garment workers dead, and over 2,000 injured. In the aftermath of the tragedy, global brands, trade unions and worker rights advocates launched the Accord on Fire and Building Safety, a legally-binding agreement to improve workplace safety for garment workers in Bangladesh. As a result of union and activist pressure, 220 brands and retailers signed onto the agreement.

The current Accord has already improved safety for 2 million garment workers across 1,600 factories. But it can't stop there – ongoing work is still needed to protect workers' lives.
