"Dishang Kenny Garment Factory closes but no legal compensation", 3 July 2021

...Dishang Kenny garment factory [has] closed, but no compensation has been paid, according to workers. The plant, which employs around 570 people, closed on April 3 without prior notice.

Wages for March were paid on the last day of the plant's opening...The workers said they did not comment on the layoffs, but said they would not be allowed to work during the period of suspension, even though they were required to pay a negotiated salary.

Most of the workers have been forced to return home due to political unrest and food shortages during the suspension. Workers want to contact the employer for compensation according to [the law] but it is difficult, according to the workers.

The union leaders said that although a basic union had been formed at the factory, there was no pre-negotiation on the closure of the factory due to weak links between the employers and the union.

Taking advantage of the political situation, the factory officials closed the factory without prior notice, and workers were suffering from non-payment of interim wages and long-term compensation.
