Striking Myanmarese garment workers return to work
Nearly 200 garment factory workers in Myanmar returned to work last week after the factory management agreed to fulfill most of their demands, according to worker leaders and factory executives. The workers at the Chinese-owned One of Front garment factory in Yangon region’s Hlaing Tharyar had gone on strike on February 1, blocking its entrance and exit.

The factory management agreed that the company will not be rude to workers, is willing to hire a local supervisor instead of a foreigner, will repay reduced wages and remove CCTV cameras from the ladies toilets, according to a report in a top newspaper in Myanmar.

But the factory management declined to rehire the workers’ leader who was sacked on February 1, as the case is still pending at the township labour dispute arbitration council.

The workers said that three knife-wielding goons they suspected to have been hired by the management threatened the striking workers on February 6. But factory officials denied the allegation.

The factory started operations about 10 months ago. (DS)
