Mandate Advocacy
Scope 4. International
Type Civil Society ('Not-for-Profit')
Description  Labour Behind the Label is a campaign that supports garment workers' efforts worldwide to improve their working conditions, through awareness raising, information provision and encouraging international solidarity between workers and consumers.

Our members include trade unions and their local branches, consumer organisations, campaign groups, and charities.

These organisations work together, through LBL, to achieve four aims:

1.Raise public awareness and mobilise consumers.
2.Pressure companies to take responsibility for workers' rights in the entirety of their supply chains.
3.Support workers in their struggles for decent working conditions, including speaker tours and urgent appeals.
4.Campaign for governments to take responsibility by legislating on corporate responsibility and in their role as consumers of workwear.
We work together with similar campaigns across Europe and with partners in producer countries through our members and the Clean Clothes Campaign, of which we are the UK platform.
