Negotiations on textile agreement have closed

The negotiations between business, trade unions and NGOs on a new sectoral agreement for responsible supply chains in the garments and textile sector have closed because the parties could not agree on the scope of the possible agreement.

After closing the current negotiation process, parties will continue to explore future partnerships and bi-lateral collaborations focused on impact in the textile supply chain.

Since the end of 2021, the SER has been facilitating negotiations between parties to come to a sectoral agreement. The parties involved in the process were trade associations INretail and Modint, trade unions CNV and FNV, and NGOs Solidaridad and UNICEF.
