Boston College Support The Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh
The recent report from the Worker Rights Consortium shows that factories producing collegiate apparel in Bangladesh are still incredibly unsafe, and brands producing in these factories continue to hide this from independent inspectors. We hope you will agree that the mounting evidence about the dangers in factories making our school apparel warrants immediate action. Fortunately, there are clear steps we can take to prevent future disasters and schools around the country are rising to the task. Recently, Duke University, Georgetown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, the University of Pennsylvania, New York University, Penn State University, and Temple University have committed to requiring all university licensees to sign the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh. We believe this is the right step for Boston College to take.
