Female migrants employed in India’s garment factories supplying to big international brands like Benetton, C&A, GAP, H&M, Levi’s, M&S and PVH, are subject to conditions of modern slavery. In Bangalore, India’s biggest garment producing hub, young women are recruited with false promises about wages and benefits, they work in garment factories under high-pressure for low wages. These are some conclusions from the report ‘Labour Without Liberty – Female Migrant Workers in Bangalore's Garment Industry’ - published by the Indian Garment Labour Union, the India Committee of the Netherlands and Clean Clothes Campaign.

Report on a consultation in the framework of a project that aims at improvement of childcare in garment factories in Bangalore, India. The consultation was held on May 29, 2015 which saw twenty three participants – Three representatives from government organizations, five from NGOs, two from global apparel brands, three from manufactures, six from trade unions, two from Multi-stakeholder initiatives and two independent professionals. The report gives an overview of the meeting and main results.
Background of the project: Several civil society organisations in Bangalore have been working for the past many years to improve childcare in garment factories. In cooperation with the German women’s organisation FEMNET, financially supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), Cividep India has now undertaken a project to improve the condition of crèches and extend their coverage in Bangalore’s garment factories. Many of these factories are suppliers of clothing, including children’s wear to the global clothing brands. The objective of the project is to help establish functional crèches in some selected factories, and to lay the groundwork for a sustainable child care model that can be adopted across garment factories in Bangalore.

Above the Din of Sewing Machines

Regisseurin: Surabhi Sharma

Schlagwörter:  Indien, Bangalore, Arbeitsbedingungen

This film documents the exploitative work conditions of women workers in the garment industry in Bangalore. Bangalore, that much hyped ‘Silicon Valley’ of India, is also home to a large garment industry that, until 2001, earned more foreign exchange from exporting cloth than the more glamorous trade in Information Technology! This film documents the exploitative work conditions of women workers in the garment industry in Bangalore. This Industry is largely geared towards exporting to big Brands in the West. And yet, the workers toil with extremely low wages and in an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.

The garment industry contributes 16.63% to the foreign earnings of India and it employs over 3.5 million workers. There are five different garment production hubs in India, all specialize in different types of garment production. Bangalore is one of the centres of production of garment and has somewhere around 1200 big, small and medium sized garment factories. Workers employed in this sector in Bangalore are nearly five hundred thousand.

With the phasing out of the Multi Fibre Agreement (MFA) in 2005 the world garment industry was put on one platform where the countries had to compete with each other to grab business. On the one hand work pressure has been constantly rising while on the other working conditions in the factories are going from bad to worse. While the garment industry is one of the biggest sources of export1, with considerable and rapid increase in growth (much of it over the last four decades), there has been a corresponding race to the bottom insofar as labour standards and wages are concerned.
