Victoria's Secret To Finance Settlement For Thai Workers Laid Off By Its Supplier: Reuters

·1 min read
  • Victoria’s Secret & Co (NYSE: VSCO) has agreed to finance an $8.3 million settlement loan to its Thailand-based supplier Brilliant Alliance Thai Global Co Ltd, Reuters reported.

  • About 1,200 workers of the supplier were laid off in 2021 without severance pay and wages owed to them after it went bankrupt.

  • Brilliant Alliance Thai had shut down its factory supplying global lingerie brands, including Victoria’s Secret, in Samut Prakan province in March 2021.

  • "Global brands need to realize that they are not passive investors, but trendsetters in setting labor standards," the report quoted David Welsh, the Thailand director for the Solidarity Center.
