ACTION NEEDED: PayUp Fashion Launch
Sep 23, 2020 —
Over the past six months, we’ve seen tremendous success with the #PayUp campaign. Over 21 brands committed to pay their garment workers for orders cancelled as a result of Covid-19, resulting in an incredible $22 billion being unlocked for makers around the globe.
More than 270,000 of you signed this petition, shared this petition, and rallied to tell brands that we wouldn’t stop until garment workers were paid their due wages. You’ve helped us stop the biggest heist in fashion’s history, and we thank you for that!
Building on the movement's success and the clear-cut need for major industry reforms, #PayUp is taking its campaign to the next level and launching a long-term vision for change called PayUp Fashion, which lays out 7 concrete, actionable labor rights goals.
This next phase of the #PayUp campaign aims to center worker voices and demands in the future of fashion. It kicks off this week with the launch of our new website, where garment workers, labor organizations, and citizen advocates can sign our petition as we begin to pressure 40 major brands and retailers (20 of them control 97% of the fashion industry’s profits) to not only #PayUp for cancelled orders, but to also keep workers safe, cancel starvation wages, and go transparent.
We ask that you please visit PayUpFashion.com and sign the petition as we work to gather one million signatures and change the future of fashion.
As Covid-19 has made clear, the fashion industry is broken, and it is only through deep, systemic changes that we can truly protect garment workers and turn fashion into a force for good.
