Will Abercrombie break its promise to workers?

Take Action: Call on Abercrombie to Stay the Course on Safety

Dear Sylvia,

Abercrombie & Fitch is dragging its feet on renewing its commitment to a rigorous garment factory safety program in Bangladesh. Abercrombie is an important buyer in Bangladesh – where 80% of the garment workers are women. Their commitment can make a critical difference to keeping those women safe.

Sign here to call on Abercrombie to stay the course on safety and not go back to business as usual!

It wasn’t until the Rana Plaza building collapse killed 1,134 garment workers that Abercrombie & Fitch finally agreed to sign a legally-binding safety agreement. The Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety, founded in 2013, is now set to expire in May. It’s already improved safety for 2 million garment workers across 1,600 factories. But the Accord can’t stop there – ongoing work is still needed to protect workers’ lives.

H&M, Zara, American Eagle Outfitters and 50 other companies have signed on to a 3-year continuation of the program – so why is Abercrombie & Fitch still holding out?

Campaigning by ILRF supporters was key to getting brands like Abercrombie to sign the first agreement. We need your help again – click here to call on Abercrombie & Fitch to stay in the Accord to continue protecting the garment workers who make their clothing!

Thanks in advance for taking action.

In solidarity,
