“Chinese-owned GTIG Huasheng garment factory violates workers' rights”, 23 June 2022

Labor activists say the…GTIG Huasheng (Myanmar) garment factory…is in clear violation of Article 87 of the ILO Convention.

According to Article 87 of the ILO Convention, the right to freedom of association must be observed. However, the factory is not compliant and is working hand in hand with a yellow union formed by its employer to accept well-known brands.

A union leader said: “The factory is making clothes under the PEP & CO and Primark brands…The factory did not oppose the formation of a union…Employers do not have the right to form a union or to destroy it," he told the DVB.

In addition, the factory forced workers to work overtime, did not pay full overtime pay, and was subject to fraud.
