WASHINGTON — H&M has agreed to sign a binding fire and building safety agreement covering garment workers in Bangladesh in the wake of the tragic collapse of the Rana Plaza building that has claimed the lives of 1,126 garment workers, according to a labor rights watchdog group pressing retailers and brands to take collective action.
The Worker Rights Consortium said Monday that H&M will sign the accord with labor unions, which requires that companies mandate and pay for renovation and repairs to ensure factories in Bangladesh are made safe, among other provisions.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
