It is also known that...no trade union is formed. It is said that WCC exist but the details about the members are unknown so...there is no one to negotiate and solve the labour issues within the workplace.

Responsible labour offices [were] reported [to] about the overtime issue and the individuals responsible from Shwe Pyi Thar labour office came to [speak to] the owner[,] but nothing about the overtime is changed and [workers] continue working as before.

“The working hours are from 8:00 AM to 19:00 PM including 2 and a half hours of overtime. But these days overtime ranges until 21:00 PM or 0:00 AM too...We are obligated to work...there were no snacks [or food]...provided during the overtime and no snack break too.”...

A dissatisfied labour said that “They are cheating by demanding [targets that are] more than we can do...Then summoning [us to work unpaid] to reach those [targets]...”

The labour also said...it was announced that those who don’t work overtime and those who take leave would [receive a] reduced grade bonus...

...[workers] can’t take a leave for health issues [despite] working overtime almost every day...
