A Movement To Reform Fashion
VF Corporation owns The North Face, Timberland, Vans, Supreme, Dickies and many other brands.
8-11-21 – VF Corp. 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. VF Corp. 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.
4-1-20 – VF Corporation (Vans, Timberland, The North Face, et al) is among the first brands to reverse its decision to cancel orders without payment and #PayUp. Originally, VF Corp. had cancelled or put on hold $56 million worth of completed or in-process orders in Bangladesh alone. By reversing this decision, countless suppliers and garment workers were spared from financial destitution.
