Maquila Solidarity Network

The Maquila Solidarity Network (MSN) is a labour and women's rights organization that supports the efforts of workers in global supply chains to win improved wages and working conditions and a better quality of life.

We believe retailers, manufacturers and brand merchandisers must be held accountable for the conditions under which their products are made.

Since 1994, we have been working in solidarity with women’s and labour rights organizations in Mexico, Central America and Asia, promoting greater respect for workers’ rights through corporate campaigning and engagement, networking and coalition building, and policy advocacy.

The fundamental aim of our work is to strengthen the capacity of civil society organizations in the North and South to challenge the negative impacts of industry restructuring in the global garment industry. In a global economy groups in the North and South must work together for employment with dignity, fair wages and working conditions, and healthy workplaces and communities.

Awarded $7,500 - 2004
