Nearly 5,000 workers protested in Dhaka on 26 April expressing outrage at the death to hundreds and injury to thousands of garment workers in the Rana Plaza building collapse.
The protest in Dhaka was in response to the worst ever industrial accident in Bangladesh where already more than 300 workers have died, thousands are injured and many more remain trapped and unaccounted for in the rubble of the collapsed 8 story building.
The TCFUA, ACTU, Uniting Church, TEAR Australia, ACRATH and the Fair Trade Association Australia and New Zealand have written a joint letter to the heads of Cotton On, Wesfarmers, Woolworths and Gap urging them to sign the Bangladesh Fire and Building Safety Accord.
