This Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aims at creating a cooperation between IndustriALL Global Union and ACT (Action Collaboration Transformation) corporate signatories (“We”) in order to achieve living wages for workers in the global textile and garment industry supply chains through mature industrial relations, freedom of association and collective bargaining.

The actions of the MoU are within the ambit of UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council in June 2011 (UNGP). The core labour conventions of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) frame the responsibilities and requirements for all actors.
