At MANGO we are conscious of the critical situation our industry is experiencing worldwide as a consequence of the COVID-19 health crisis.
We are aware that not only ourselves as a brand but also our chain of suppliers, and in particular the workers that make up the chain, are experiencing especially challenging times. This is why we are working hard to seek solutions in order to deal with it in the best way possible for everybody: employees, suppliers, society, etc. The best way is through alliances with key representatives of the sector, in order to provide a more effective joint response.
We understand the emergency and the need to ensure that the human rights of factory workers are respected, since they are the ones who are most vulnerable. We are maintaining a continuous dialogue with our suppliers, seeking joint solutions and commitments in order to protect business interests and the workers.
In the specific case of these factories in Myanmar, during the last month, we have been in permanent conversations with local unions in that country, Spanish union representatives and the managers of the factory and this case has been finally solved through an agreement between parts. The jointly cooperation and commitment to good faith negotiations have led to the final resolution beneficial to the employees and also to employer, the union and the brands in the case of Myanmode factory and hopefully in brief in Rui Ning as well.
