Zara in the USA

USA: Zara must respect workers' rights

#ChangeZaraInditex is a transnational corporation that wants to be seen as socially responsible.

For example, it signed a global agreement with UNI Global Union committing it to respecting the rights of its workers worldwide. And to be fair, in many countries, workers in Zara and other Inditex brands enjoy rights consistent with the obligations laid down in the global agreement.

But not in the USA.

There, Inditex refuses to give practical effect to its Global Agreement. In the USA, Inditex and Zara workers do not have the same rights of consultation and negotiation as they do in other countries. In the USA, Inditex does not permit workers to freely choose to join a trade union.

Please take a moment to tell Inditex that you expect them to live up to their obligations, and to respect workers' rights everywhere. Click here:

And please share this message with your friends, family and fellow union members.

Thank you!
