ACTION: Matalan #PayUp

matalansq1The Pay Up campaign is calling on all brands and retailers who were sourcing from factories in Rana Plaza to pay compensation to the families of the 1138 workers killed and to the 2500 workers who were injured when it collapsed in April last year.

It has been over a year since the disaster and families are still waiting for justice. This is long enough!  Join our campaign and tell Jason Hargreaves, Matalan’s CEO, to Pay Up now!  We’re calling on Matalan to make an immediate payment of £3m into the Rana Plaza Donors Trust Fund so that families and victims can start rebuilding their lives.
