"Workers' rights are being violated at the MOHITO brand sewing factory", 26 February 2023

At the Jun Sheng Garment Factory, which manufactures [for] MOHITO, an international brand, workers say they do not have legal labor rights, so they want to take action.

The factory, which was opened on Wet Masut Wan Naong Road, Hlaing Thayar Township, Shwe Lin Van Industrial Zone, Yangon Region, is operating with around 400 workers, and the workers say that the workers' rights and benefits and health and social conditions are being severely violated in the workplace.

It is also known that without the establishment of a labor union in the workplace, there is no solution to labor-related issues.

The workers said that they are facing difficulties due to the fact that they do not have legal benefits in the workplace, they are forced to work overtime on Sundays without the consent of the workers, the [targets] are more than the workers can sew, and if they do not meet the standards, they are forced to work almost all night long, and they are forced to work continuously without a break.

"I have to go to work all night long, and when I arrive the next morning, I have to go back to work. When and how do I go to sleep?...," said a worker who did not want to be named.

It is said that due to not getting enough rest and sleep, workers' health deteriorates and it is impossible to complain.

In the workplace, supervisors...and line leaders are also facing profanity and coercion, and it is reported that [workers] are having a hard time because there is no emergency exit in the workplace, there is no medical room, there is no dining area, and the toilets are not comfortable.

"The starting time for work is 8:00 a.m., but the time for leaving is not specified....[Workers] are released when they want to leave. If [workers] miss a day of work, their daily allowances are cut...If they miss a day because they are sick, their salary is greatly affected. The daily wage is 4,800, so they are unfairly cut," said the unsatisfied worker.

According to the workers, there are daily workers employed at the factory, and they earn less than 4,800 kyats, and they are not approved for employment after 3 months.
