"The Ford Glory factory is calling for overtime due to threats against workers", 11 September 2023

According to the workers, the Ford Glory factory on Shwe Pytha Township's school road is threatening the workers and calling for overtime unfairly.

It is also known that because of working overtime every day without a day off, if their health is affected, they are cut off without permission, and if they do not work overtime because they are tired, [the factory] hold[s] grudges and find[s] fault[s] and [they] are fired.

"Working time is already past 4:30...When we said we didn't want to work, they said they'd fire us if we didn't work...["] A worker said.

Currently, they are preparing to call for two and a half shifts in the morning and night, and it is convenient for the day workers [because the factory] schedule[s] [a] ferry, but it is not convenient for the night shift workers because the ferry is not scheduled.

"...Those who work in the mornings have a ferry, and those who work at night don't have a ferry. I have to take a bus to go. I am not satisfied with that. The overtime is always different from what we have recorded and what they have recorded...After I leave for the night, I will go back to work at 4 am. If I go to work at 12 o'clock in the morning, I will go back in at 8 am. Today, I will get off at dawn. Even on Sunday, we are off. "There is no day off. I want one day off a week," said the worker.

A worker said, "If your health breaks down because you are working all the time, you will not be allowed to work. If you do not work overtime, you will be fired... If you do not work overtime...There is no WCC in the factory. I have reported this to the managers and supervisors, and nothing has happened..." said a worker.

It is reported that the factory is a factory owned by Chinese nationals, and with 500 workers...

In addition, the factory often changes its name and operates according to the worker.

In this factory, it is reported that SINSAY [is sourcing from the factory].
