The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung—New York Office, in cooperation with Jobs With Justice, Asia Floor Wage Alliance, and the Murphy Institute at CUNY, will host “ClothesLined: Stopping Walmart’s Dirty Supply Chain Moves,” a convening taking place June 25-27.
At this important event – which includes a public component, to be held on June 25 (4-6pm at The Murphy Institute, 25 West 43rd Street, 19th Floor) – we will discuss the fight to improve conditions of workers in Walmart’s global garment supply chain. Representatives of unions and other worker organizations from India, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and the United States will come together to assess how to strengthen the ability of workers to improve their conditions at the company, from factory to store.
Walmart’s unique position as the world’s largest private employer should come with a responsibility to ensure workers’ voices are heard and their freedom of association respected. Unfortunately, Walmart’s unwillingness to accept this responsibility has left workers no choice but to work across national lines to collectively hold the company accountable for its labor practices.
At this event, leaders from several countries will share their experiences while laying the groundwork for direct engagement with Walmart. In keeping with the spirit of transparency and responsibility, we have extended an invitation to Walmart representatives to attend and participate.
Due to limited capacity, RSVP is required to attend this event. Please RSVP here.
