When the latest scandal surrounding Leicester’s garment industry hit the headlines again in 2020 the TUC in the Midlands knew it was time for us to step up to the plate.
Scandal has dogged the industry for too long. And it’s working people who suffer as a result.
But we don’t want anger. We don’t want grand standing. We want solutions.
Instead of exploitation we want good jobs, a thriving sector and an industry that Leicester can be proud of.
That’s why the trade union movement across Leicester and the Midlands have rolled up our collective sleeves, reached out to brands, to politicians and to NGOs and the wider Leicester community in search of a better model for the industry.
We know we can’t solve this on our own. But we know we’ve got a crucial role to play.
Let’s build a better industry, together, that can bring success and better, safe jobs. That’s our sole aim.
This is the story one year on. And we’ve not finished yet.
