The Alliance, group of North American apparel companies, retailers and brands, declared that in total 195 numbers of factories completed all material components outlined in their corrective action plan (CAPs) as additional 29 factories have been added during the month of September, according to a press statement of October.
The alliance is a legally binding, five-year commitment from US retailers to improve safety in Bangladeshi ready-made garment factories. According to Alliance Country Director Jim Moriarty the factories are prioritizing the remediation and fulfilling their commitment providing safer workplaces for their employees.
The Alliance group ensured zero factories are suspended for failure to make remediation progress in the month of September and also demonstrated that the Alliance is on pace to complete remediation across its affiliated factories in 2018. In July one factory was suspended from the Alliance compliant factory list.
Quoted Moriarty the statement also added, “The safety among the factories is fortified & the factories remaining in the network are working to meet strict safety requirements”. He promised to make Bangladesh ever stronger and would work with garments industry in the long run.
