Save The Australian Fashion Industry

AndMine is supporting SAFI a campaign against changes which would see key Australian manufacturers, designers and the jobs of thousands effected and force many more companies to offshore garment sourcing.

In brief, what is this all about? Basically through Australian designers, manufactures in Australia share work amongst thousands of home based sub-contractors; the new Fair Work Act (TCF provisions) amended March 2012 reduce the flexibility of these arrangements, effectively shutting down these jobs.

SAFI and AndMine supports all efforts to eliminate genuine exploitation of workers in the TCF industry and any other industry worldwide.

SAFI hopes to generate enough public concern and to help direct these concerns to the appropriate channels while maintaining the flexibility for the mothers and home based sub-contractors who rely on their Australian based work.

For more information, please visit SAFI’s Facebook page and like their page to support this cause.
