PVH signs individual binding agreements to support collective bargaining in Cambodia


PVH signed individual binding agreements to support collective bargaining in Cambodia at the Global Fashion Summit in Copenhagen. The agreements were signed in collaboration with ACT (Action, Collaboration, Transformation), IndustriALL Global Union and member unions. 

These agreements aim to enable higher wages, better working conditions, and sourcing commitments from brands. They will benefit not just PVH’s supply chain in Cambodia but the supply chains of all signatory brands sourcing from the the country 

The template created at the summit sets an example for a positive impact on global human rights in the supply chain and demonstrates things can be achieved with collaboration and commitment to drive progress, says Michael Bride, SVP - Corporate Responsibility and Public Affairs.

These individual binding agreements between brands and IndustriALL Global Union are one of the first-ever brand-supported collective bargaining agreements in the garment and footwear sector. The agreements support effective and sustainable industry collaboration among all actors across the value chain. They showcase strong leadership by brands, employers, and unions in the sector, signaling a new era in wage approaches, freedom of association, and responsible purchasing practices.

Athit Kong, President, Coalition of Cambodia Apparel Worker Democratic Union, opines, the agreements bring all parties in the sector and supply chains to the negotiating table. Kong also notes, as one of the first-ever legally binding agreements, they promote accountability and better social dialogues in these sector
