"Suzhou Silk Fashion (Myanmar) sewing factory, which sews H&M brand, asks workers to pay allowance for holidays", 16 March 2023

At the Suzhou Silk Fashion (Myanmar) garment factory, which manufactures and exports H&M clothing, the workers have demanded to be paid for the days the factory is closed due to a shortage of orders... It is also known that there is no organized labour union in the workplace.

The factory, which was opened at Shwe Lin Van Industrial Zone, Hlaing Thayar Township, Yangon Region, is operating with more than 1,000 employees. Due to a shortage of orders, the workers have been informed that they will be closed from March 6 to 25.

It is reported that supervisors told the workers to close the factory without paying them and asked them to sign the paper. The factory announced in February 2023 that there would be no overtime OT, and in March it was announced that it would be closed without pay due to a lack of orders.

"We announced that the work will be closed, and without collecting the consent of the workers, we collected the signatures of the workers on A4 paper agreeing to the strike without pay. The workers did not agree, and they were afraid of the supervisors and then they gave it to the workers. The workers want to be paid for the weekend," said a worker.


The workers also said that they did not receive the full benefits of the law in the workplace, that the supervisors who supervised the workplace, forced them to swear obscenely, paid only 3,600 kyats to the day laborers, and fired the day laborers after 3 months.
