A Movement To Reform Fashion
UNIQLO is owned by Fast Retailing, which also owns Theory, Helmut Lang, and J Brand, among other brands.
2-11-21 – UNQILO has failed to Keep Workers Safe. The company has not agreed to PayUp Fashion’s 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, Fast Retailing (UNIQLO) 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.
6-19-20 – UNIQLO agrees to #PayUp for all completed and in-process orders placed prior to the pandemic. The $8.6 billion company is run by CEO Tadashi Yanai, Japan’s richest person and whose net worth is $32 billion.
