ILO supports migrant textile workers in Brazil

SÃO PAULO – The International Labour Organisation (ILO), Brazilian Association of Textile Retail (ABVTEX), Brazilian Association of Textile Industry (Abit), Instituto C&A (the Brazilian office of C&A Foundation), Instituto Lojas Renner and Zara Brazil have announced a partnership to promote decent work in the textile and apparel sector of São Paulo.
