The aim of this CCC E-Bulletin is to define the issues at stake to prevent closures. Secondly this bulletin looks into the issues at stake when garment factories close or significantly reduce their production and therefore drastically reduce the number of employees. This bulletin also seeks to provide an overview of the existing regulations and agreements regarding closure and workers' rights in the international labour rights context. The emphasis of this bulletin is on the role of the brand name companies and retailers that find themselves at the top of the supply chain.
