Behind the showroom: the hidden reality of India’s garment workers

May 06, 2014

Labour rights abuses and grave human rights violations, including bonded labour, are enduring on India's garment factory work floors, said FIDH in a report launched today in New Delhi.

To conceal indecent working conditions, garment factory managers and owners deploy extremely well-orchestrated show-responses to external visits by auditors, foreign buyers and NGOs alike.

The report is based on an FIDH mission of observation featuring visits of garment factories and on-site hostels as well as interviews with local trade unions, NGOs and experts in the states of Tamil Nadu, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh.
