The chief executive of Tchibo has a clear goal for workers who produce goods for the German retailer.
“We want to achieve wages that guarantee a secure existence for all textile industry workers in producing countries,” Markus Conrad said.
And he’s now taken an important step toward that goal. Tchibo is the first German merchandising company to sign a framework contract with the global trade union federation IndustriALL. The two parties want to improve working conditions, including the right to organize unions in producing countries.
