      I wrote to those two companies saying:

      Some of Carter's clothing line is made in Bangladesh. Given the horrendous fire where over 100 Bangladeshi garment workers died, I am writing to ask Carter's Inc. to please join the same agreement that both PVH Corp (owner of Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Van Heusen, IZOD, ARROW, G.H. Bass, and Eagle) and Tchibo Corp. have signed with Bangladeshi and international unions. They agreed to develop a fire safety program to prevent future deaths in Bangladesh’s garment industry. The program includes independent inspections, public reporting, mandatory repairs and renovations, a central role for workers and unions in both oversight and implementation, supplier contracts with sufficient financing and adequate pricing, and a binding contract to make these commitments enforceable.
