Support for establishing a minimum wage for textile workers in Tamil Nadu
Brands, retailers, and organizations, representing a significant percentage of the buyers of textiles and garments from Tamil Nadu state, applaud the Tamil Nadu government for building a successful textile and garment industry in Tamil Nadu.
In a letter to the Minimum Wages Committee for Textile Industry Tamil Nadu, the organizations welcome the establishment of a Minimum Wages Committee for the Textile Industry by the Government of Tamil Nadu.
“As global fashion brands and retailers, we believe the establishment of a minimum wage that meets international standards and guidance established by the ILO on wage setting will help to position Tamil Nadu as a responsible sourcing destination,” according to the letter. “We urge the Committee to base the minimum wage on ILO C131 (Minimum Wage Fixing Convention) and its accompanying recommendation R135 (Minimum Wage Fixing Recommendation).”
