NEXTIL, a textile group that owns brands such as Treiss, Ritex, Dogi, EFA, Playvest, Sici 93, Anna Llop or Horizon Research Lab. (GDYES), has signed an agreement to join the Social and Labor Convergence Program (SLCP), which seeks to unify criteria for assessing social conditions and working in the textile sector in order to achieve real and lasting improvements, as reported by the company in a statement.
Specifically, the Social and Labor Convergence Program (SLCP) is a project with an inclusive strategy aimed at multiple stakeholders. The signatories of this program include manufacturers, retailers, brands, auditing and control companies, as well as organizations related to the public sector and civil society, among others.
This program aims to promote a change with respect to what has been done so far in this area, that is, to concentrate resources on controls that became an end in themselves without leading to any substantial change in working methods and conditions.
In this regard, SLCP and NEXTIL, together with the rest of the signatories of the agreement, about 200 since its launch in 2015, are working together to implement the first framework agreement in the industry to assess social conditions. This agreement is expected to be configured and ready to be applied as of October of this year.
Since its origins, NEXTIL has been committed to respecting fundamental rights and promoting decent working conditions, so that integration into this program represents a further step in its commitment to sustainability and quality in employment.
