WASHINGTON — A garment worker who survived the Rana Plaza building collapse in Bangladesh last April said Wednesday that she cannot work as a result of her injuries and is touring the U.S. with labor and worker’s rights groups to pressure universities to require their collegiate apparel licensees to sign the legally binding Accord for Building and Fire Safety in Bangladesh.
The accord said Wednesday that it had reached its 150-signatory mark while the International Labor Rights Forum released a 50-page report charging that U.S. military exchanges are “turning a blind eye” to working conditions in Bangladeshi garment factories.
