Tower Hamlets Ethical School Uniforms Campaign

This pdf (front page) was circulated amongst UNISON London regional International committee members via our Chair Ruby Cox.

(double click to bring up detail).

This campaign encourages schools to check their their uniforms are not made by child labour makes perfect sense.

"Ethical products can be surprisingly competitive. As clothing workers only get a tiny 1-3% share of sale prices, their wages can be increased with little or no rise in cost to parents. Increased volumes reduce prices".

We also need to make sure that our pension fund investments do not exploit child labour.
