Blanket-factory row, resolved
19
May '10
Labour representatives and officials of a blanket factory in the Shwelinban Industrial Zone of Rangoon informed that, the ongoing row between the management and employees, owing to employers being blamed by 14 leaders of the worker's group, has been resolved.

The dispute came to fore after May 6, when 80 workers from the Htawara Blanket Factory came up with a demand for wage hike besides, a secured and healthy work environment and health-care prerogatives, stated a labour representative.

Now, with the intervention of settlement authorities, an agreement has been reached and the 14 labour representatives agitating in support of the workers group sensed that, their employers resented them, as it was evident by employer's unnecessary monitoring over the workers and they had also curtailed overtime.

The labour leader averred that, 14 leaders along with Aye Aye Myint and Swe Hlaing Oo, on May 10, lodged a complaint before the township labour office, charging their employers for discrimination. They thus, pulled in the township's Peace and Development Council to administer the negotiations that were to take place between the management and workers' leaders, he said.

The row ended as the employers agreed to few of the workers' demands, and the meet concluded with both parties clarifying their stands, an official from Hlaingtharyar Township labour management committee informed during a press conference.

Since December, hundreds of employees working with the garment manufacturing factories, inclusive of the Lion City garment factory, sweets, footwear and leather in Hlaingtharyar, Shwepyithar and Insein townships in Rangoon Division, with their demands for wage hike, lesser work time and other labour privileges have time and again given strike calls.
