Union leaders and campaigners praise the new accord that replaces the one reached after the 2013 Rana Plaza fire. Campaigners have hailed a new agreement designed to protect garment workers in Bangladesh, signed by the likes of H&M and Inditex, which owns Zara and Bershka. These companies were first to be sued if their safety and health standards were not met or they failed to address issues within the agreed time frame. Since 2013, more than 38,000 inspections were conducted. Companies that failed to adhere to safety standards have had their contracts terminated.
