Lauren D'Ambrosio started this petition to Ikea

The workers behind manufacturing a large portion of our furniture, pots & pans, and other appliances aren't usually the first thing that comes to mind when you see something that interests you while in an IKEA store. However, it is time we begin to give these employees the recognition, fair pay, and the treatment they deserve. The factories creating IKEA’s products are not even close to being comfortable for humans to work in.

While domestically, this issue is not as pertinent, it has a great presence in IKEA’s international factories, including multiple developing countries (Bangladesh, Vietnam, and Malaysia). An American factory even recently closed down due to worker unhappiness; simply imagine how the outsourced employees feel as their human rights are violated but they are unable to unionize.

IKEA pretends to care about their workers happiness and rights, but do not truly try to keep their employees safe. They refuse to sign the Accord, which would mean they support making their international factories safer. They have their so called “IKEA way” that has not proven to truly benefit the workers in any way.
One of the main problems we're focusing on stems from IKEA's factories in Bangladesh, where the working conditions are not favorable and workers are frequently placed in dangerous situations. However, IKEA refuses to comply with the work being done to make these factories safer, claiming they have their own methods and can already ensure the safety of their suppliers.
Please join us in protecting the safety of IKEA factory workers! Alternative companies include Wayfair, Amazon, and Sears Outlet, which are all moderately affordable and offer the same items as IKEA.
As long as IKEA doesn’t construct safe factories, we will not purchase their goods. Until they sign the Accord, they can kiss their profits goodbye.
