Myanmar: Over 600 garment workers reportedly denied leave; incl. co. responses

In February 2023 it was reported that more than 600 workers at the Myanmar Dixinda garment factory faced labour abuses including denial of leave incl. sick leave and other social security benefits. Workers who take leave face wage cuts. Pregnant workers are also denied the leave they are entitled to.

In October 2023, Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Baroque (for its Azul brand), Fieldcore and Gratex to respond. They did not.
