Canadian retailer Loblaw Cos. Ltd. outlined plans to provide long- and short-term compensation to injured survivors and victims’ families linked to one of the factories producing its apparel at the Rana Plaza building complex, as several rallies and protests in the U.S. and in Bangladesh marked the six-month anniversary Thursday of the collapse of the structure, which killed 1,132 people.
British retailer Primark also announced Thursday that it has set a timetable to begin providing long-term compensation payments to workers and their dependents of New Wave Bottoms, the factory producing its apparel in the Rana Plaza complex, and is considering extending another short-term round of payments to the estimated 3,600 victims of the disaster for another three months.
