...The SEN YU garment factory, which manufactures jackets [for] international brands such as TERRANOVA [and Sinsay], has only been open for about 5 months. Currently, more than 100 day laborers are forced to work for about 3 months, then fired, and then rehired as day laborers, so the workers say that they are losing their rights.

The factory, which operates with more than 1,000 workers, is...opened on Van Maw Secretary Road in the middle of the village of Hlaing Thayar Township.

In addition to the violation of day laborers, some of the confirmed employees were also fired.

The manager, Daw Si Sime...does not support workers. The workers said that [he was] known to act...on the side of the employer without acting according to the law.

"Some workers are fired because they don't have orders, and then they call in new people, violating the law outright," the worker noted.

In the current workplace, it is known that they do not leave the office for overtime, and they work from 7:55 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. every weekday to 4:30 a.m. on Sundays, and the rest of the days they have to work until 8:30 p.m. without a break.

"On September 28th, there are workers who were forced to stop working because they didn't get orders. The next day, I asked the manager, and he said that they were fired because they didn't listen to the super[visors]" said the worker, who did not want to be named.

It is reported that workers who refuse to [work overtime] are forced to sign [for their resignation] on the grounds that they are no longer needed.
