Joint Submission: Forced Labour in UK Value Chains

Posted on Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020

René Cassi recently signed on to a joint submission as part of the Coalition to End Forced Labour in the Uyghur Region to the UK Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Committee’s consultation on links between Uyghur forced labour and apparel companies operating in the UK.

The Committee is investigating the risks that UK based businesses face when engaging supply chains that originate in China and what more the Government can do to ensure that businesses and consumers in the UK do not perpetuate the forced labour of Uyghur.

This joint submission was submitted on behalf of members and endorsers of the Coalition to End Forced Labour in the Uyghur Region, a coalition of over 280 Uyghur representative groups, civil society organisations, trade unions, faith-based groups and investors united to end state-sponsored forced labour and other egregious human rights abuses against people from the Uyghur Region in China, known to local people as East Turkistan.
