Walmart, H&M accused of abandoning workers

Labour rights groups have accused Walmart and H&M of abandoning workers at the shuttered Kingsland garment factory in the capital.

Community Legal Education Center (CLEC) and Workers Information Center (WIC) said they were appalled by a claim from Walmart it had not dealt with Kingsland since 2011 and H&M’s statement that it had not ordered from the factory since last July.

The factory closed this month, owing workers about $200,000. “Workers testify that Walmart production continued until the first week of September 2012,” CLEC and WIC said.

“Workers testify that H&M alterations and quality checks continued until. . . September, 2012.”
