Just Jeans - Stop exploiting Bangladeshi workers
To: Mark McInnes CEO of Just Group
It is not acceptable that your clothes are made by people working in unsafe conditions. Many other retailers have already promised to change.
We ask you as the CEO of Just Group to:
- Sign onto the Bangladesh Fire and Safety Accord
- Be transparent and open about what conditions your employees in Bangladesh are working in
Just Jeans are refusing to take action to stop workers from being hurt or killed -- like they were in the Rana Plaza factory fire and collapse in April this year -- by holding out on signing the Bangladesh Fire and Safety Accord. After more than 1000 workers were killed in this disaster, over 80 companies have signed the Accord, but Just Jeans is refusing. We need to send the CEO a message that their refusal to sign is just not acceptable!
Under the Accord, all signatory companies must agree to independent safety inspections with public reports on all Bangladeshi suppliers, mandatory repairs and renovations, the obligation by brands to underwrite the costs of safety upgrades, and repercussions for suppliers that refuse to improve conditions including the termination of business.
The Just Group owns many well known Australian brands like Just Jeans, Dotti, Portmans, Peter Alexander, Jay Jays, Smiggle, and Jacqui E to name a few.
Sign on the right to stand with Bangladeshi workers and demand they be treated with dignity and no longer work in dangerous - and even deadly - conditions.
