El Corte Inglés stands for labour rights
What: The company and the unions are committed to collaborating to strengthen and protect workers who produce products for El Corte Inglés's own brands around the world.
Why is it important: This is the first multisectoral agreement signed by a Spanish company to enforce respect of international human, labour, social and environmental rights in the supply chain.
This agreement stands for a more sustainable industry and is the result of the work debuted in 2012, since both unions are members of the Working Group of Stakeholders of El Corte Inglés. The text aims to work together to guarantee decent working conditions in compliance with the legislation in force in the factories and countries where their products are manufactured.
