I just mentioned Labour Behind the Label and I thought that it was worth mentioning that they just released their new Let's Clean Up Fashion Report for 2009 yesterday.  Here are some of the highlights:

No Work to Speak Of
French Connection
John Lewis
Laura Ashley
Levi Strauss & Co
River Island

One Cheer: Mention of work on living wages, but
unconvincing so far

Arcadia Group
Aurora Fashions

Two Cheers: Work to increase wages, but not enough yet
Marks & Spencer (M&S)
Monsoon Accessorize
New Look

The report also discusses the general state of labour conditions and the grading policy they use to evaluate these companies.  In my opinion, this report gives us some cause to be hopeful.  Gap has had several huge scandals involving their labour conditions over the last decade (I'll write more about this later), but it seems to have motivated the company to take giant leaps forward in terms of their labour conditions.  However, as the report points out, we still have a very long way to go in terms of ensuring fair working conditions around the world.
