GENEVA — Textile and apparel labor leaders and workers were among the victims of human rights violations last year, including assassinations, assaults and arbitrary dismissals, for trying to exercise their basic rights, a global study said.
The annual survey by the International Trade Union Confederation that covers violations in 138 countries also lists other serious breaches related to textile and apparel companies, many in export processing zones, in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Sri Lanka, Peru, Honduras, Turkey, Morocco, Lesotho, Mauritius, Jordan and Egypt. Export processing zones, or EPZs, include free trade zones, special economic zones, bonded warehouses, free ports, customs zones and maquiladoras.
