Myanmar: Labour groups accuse garment factories of discriminatorily dismissing all union members
"Myanmar: Stop union-busting at sporting goods company", October 2020
After the VIP 1 and 2 factory unions demanded Covid-19 safety measures inside the factory, the factory dismissed all union members in both factories and the VIP 2 factory union president was stabbed by company thugs. It is a clear, brutal case of union-busting. The factories make sporting goods for Mizuno, CCM, Evil Bikes, Pivot Cycles, and Wilson Sporting Goods. Despite months of direct outreach from the unions, the brands have refused to intervene or mediate whatsoever.
