Alle Tags anzeigen Anschuldigungen


Handa Yangon Garment 2 Garment Factory is located at No. 13/14/15, corner of U Shwe Win and U Muu Road, Shwe Lim Van Industrial Zone, Hlaing Thayar Township, Yangon Division (near the Rakhine Road Junction) and [there are] more than 4,000 people in the factory...The Japanese brand United Athle is [sourcing from] that factory.

The factory is forced to turn off the fans if the generator is not working [and it closes] the doors [so there is no]...ventilation. [It is] too hot.

According to FGWM, workers who are currently working at the factory say that when workers are [unwell], they are not easily given a gate pass [to] go to the hospital...

[They do] not pay...workers who miss two days of work per month...and [if workers] don't meet the [target], [they must work] overtime without [overtime] pay. If you take leave, the leaders discriminate and only give it to those who are comfortable with the leaders. There are not enough medicines in the clinic...
