WRC Conf Call on Bangladesh: Wed, Oct 30, 3 p.m. (EDT)


October 24, 2013

Dear Colleagues,

As noted in our most recent update on Bangladesh worker safety, the WRC will be hosting an informational conference call for affiliate universities and colleges concerning the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh.

The call has now been scheduled. It will take place on Wednesday, October 30 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern time. The call will be 90 minutes in length.

On the call, we will provide information on the worker safety crisis in Bangladesh, the elements of the Accord, the status of its implementation, the WRC’s recent recommendation that affiliates require licensees sourcing from Bangladesh to become signatories, and related topics.

The call-in details will be provided in a subsequent message.

I hope you will be able to join us on October 30.
