#PayUp Victories & What's Next!
Oct 2, 2020 —
Dear #PayUp Supporters,
After getting the attention of fashion brands all over the world, the #PayUp petition has resulted in an incredible $22 billion being unlocked for garment workers. Over 21 brands committed to pay their bills for orders cancelled as a result of Covid-19, saving the lives of millions of mostly women makers who faced food and housing insecurity at the outbreak of the pandemic. We most certainly consider this campaign a victory!
As a result of #PayUp’s success, we’ve launched payupfashion.com, a movement to reform fashion through 7 actionable labor rights goals, including canceling starvation wages, keeping workers safe, and utilizing enforceable contracts that put workers first. Over the next year, we’ll be pressuring 40 of fashion’s most influential brands and retailers to meet these demands, tracking their progress along the way.
We ask that you please make your way over to www.payupfashion.com read more about our demands, and most importantly, sign our new petition.
We hope that you will join us for this next phase of #PayUp — the fight for a better future of fashion has only just begun!
In Solidarity, The #PayUp Team
