A Movement To Reform Fashion

2-11-21 – Primark has failed to Keep Workers Safe. The company has not responded to PayUp Fashion regarding  our demands that brands contribute to the Severance Guarantee Fund for laid-off garment workers and contribute 1% of net revenue towards direct relief for garment workers impacted by the pandemic. Like many other large brands, Primark is a signatory to the ILO Call to Action, which promised eleven months ago to “protect garment workers’ income,” but the Call to Action has to date released a staggeringly insufficient sum of money to garment workers (less than $200 million to just four countries) and is in no way a satisfactory response to this crisis.

9-10-20 – After months of pressure from the #PayUp campaign, Primark finally agrees to #PayUp on time and in full for all orders placed prior to the pandemic.

4-29-20 – According to the Worker Rights Consortium, Primark has reinstated $460 million in orders it originally cancelled. However, the company still owes a substantial amount for other outstanding orders and has imposed long delays in payments, putting its suppliers and garment workers under extreme financial distress.
