Fashion Brand To Pay $2.3M In Bangladesh Accord Deal

January 23, 2018, Law360

Marney Cheek is quoted in a Law360 article regarding a $2.3 million settlement between labor unions and a global fashion brand over garment factory conditions under the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh. “These settlements show that an enforcement mechanism like arbitration can be a critical part of ensuring compliance with the Bangladesh Accord,” says Cheek, who led the Covington team acting for IndustriALL Global Union and UNI Global Union. “It’s unique that the Accord has an agreement by the parties to binding arbitration, but I think having that agreement has really led to enhanced accountability by the signatories.”
