Updated on

Fast Retailing Co., Asia’s biggest clothing seller, said it would improve working conditions at two factories operated by suppliers in China after an advocacy group published a report highlighting abuses.

Dongguan Tomwell Garment Co. and Pacific Textiles Ltd., should take steps including eliminating fines against workers, increasing holidays, requiring protective clothing and monitoring air quality, Yamaguchi, Japan-based Fast Retailing said today in a statement. The maker of Uniqlo casual wear also said it will work with outside groups to monitor work conditions at the factories.
