No Sweat + Haiti Support Group tour

H&M

The cheap chic fashion store with their HQ in Sweden are aggressively moving into the US market. The US union, Unite, is attempting to unionise their stores and distribution centres using high-profile stunts and publicity campaigns.

H&M's US bosses have begun a drive to stop the union - sacking an East Coast union activist before Xmas. In solidarity with Unite GMB and No Sweat activists picketed H&M's Oxford Street stores in December. H&M's hired extra security and their staff stole a No Sweat banner and thousands of GMB leaflets during the protest.

A new briefing about the reality of H&M's sweatshop clothes production chain is on the No Sweat web site: www.nosweat.org.uk
