“In co-operation with Comhlamh, Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) Mandate and Trocaire, Re-dress has working on the establishment of an Irish branch Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) in 2010.
The CCC is the world’s largest alliance of labour unions and NGOs. It’s main focus is on the improvement of working conditions in the global garment and industry and to build sustainable livelihoods for workers.
The CCC aim to educate and mobilise consumers, lobbies, companies and governments, and to offer direct solidarity support to workers as they fight for their rights. They cover a broad spectrum of perspectives and interests, such as women’s rights, consumer advocacy and poverty reduction.
As an Irish Branch of the CCC, we hope to inform and mobilise consumers to make them a voice in Ireland against global injustices in the clothing manufacturing sector. By creating a working group, we aim to lobby companies and governments specifically on injustices in the garment sector.” (re-dress)
