"A worker who responded to being forced to swear at the BOHUA garment factory was fired for allegedly causing a fight.", 15 September 2023

A worker at the BOHUA Garment Factory was fired for having a[n]...argument with a supervisor...

"The supervisor...fire[d] him because he yelled back and called it a fight in the factory," said the male worker.

On September 14th, when he was asked to lift more than 150 meters of 20 rolls of cloth up to the height of four levels in the workplace, he said that it was not possible with only two workers...

After a few words between the male worker and the warehouse supervisor...the super[visor] complained to the office.

After this, the male worker told me that he was fired...

"I was told that I could be fired because my working [contract] was only one month...As written in the dismissal letter, there was no conflict...."

When BOHUA FASHION Co,.ltd started hiring, they said they would pay 5,600 per day, but the EC contract set it at 4,800...

According to Ma Aye, who is handling the labor dispute, it is not a fair decision to fire only one person in the conflict between the two sides.

"Being fired at a time when jobs are scarce will be difficult for workers...." Ma Aye said.

The worker told Myanmar Labor News that on September 15, the factory paid the male laborer...[the] wages based on the days he worked [and benefits]...

It is known that the owner of the factory is a Chinese national, and he employs around 300 workers and sews clothes from other factories.

The brands that the factory [supplies] are Sinsay... and Reserved.
