“Popular International Garment factory workers' strike increased by 5,600. Settlement”, 2 June 2023

…workers at the Chinese-owned Popular International Garment garment factory requested an increase of 5,600 kyats.

"…The day fee is increased by 5,600, the [overtime] fee is increased by 1,400, and the daily fee is increased by 7,000," said a worker who participated in the strike request.

The workers of the factory, like other factories, asked the factory officials through the WCC to increase the day wages by 5,600 and also to increase the very low daily wages. When they made such a request, the factory manager said that "no factory can be increased until the government gives an increase", so the entire factory stopped working on June 1 and demanded a strike.

Popular International Garment factory employs 35 men… with a total of…850 women workers. Workers [asked the factory] to[:] raise their daily wages from 4,800 kyats to 5,600 kyats[;]to increase the overtime fee and regular daily fee of 40,000 kyats[;] to increase the level by…5,000 kyats for 1 year of seniority[;]To arrange shuttle vehicles...[;] To set [targets] that workers can [meet]. They started asking for hot and cold water machines on June 1.

The workers' request was presented to the employer….at the office of the Township Labor Relations Department on the evening of June 2…It is reported that a settlement was reached through the negotiation of the workers…
