The World Federation of Trade Unions representing 97 million workers in the 5 continents, strongly condemns the anti-labour practices and the low wages that the H&M multinational pay to its workers all over the world.

More than 100 workers of the H&M stores at several Auckland branches are protesting against the low wages that are not enough for the covering of even the basic contemporary needs of the workers and are in complete mismatch both with the multiple duties and the countless profits which are created by the workers sweat in all levels of the production line.

The international class-oriented trade union movement calls the workers to continue and strengthen their struggles, given that their working-situation can only change through the decisive, conscious and class-oriented struggles of the trade union movement. The WFTU assures them that will always support with all its forces the struggling workers all over the world for dignified work with rights.
