“STUM also said that the Honor Apparel Garment Factory will continue to monitor and monitor the illegal dismissal of the Super employee in violation of the EC, and will inform the public in a timely manner.”, 27 June 2023

It is reported that Honor Apparel Co., Ltd, a garment factory opened at Shwe Pytha Industrial Zone, Insein Township, 3 Pulay Road No. 133/B, filed a complaint against a Super[visor] for violating the EC contract.

"They hired [a supervisor] in May. According to the law, they [must sign] the EC contract within 30 days. They signed the [contract with the] worker at the factory…However, [after] they were fired…[the factory] denied that there was an EC. He started working 5 months ago [but they] failed to send the EC contract within 30 days according to the law…," said the person assisting the worker's case.

The factory hired [the supervisor] on May 19, 2023…and signed the employment contract on June 10, but the employer failed to send it to Al Nay, and he was fired on June 15.

Since he was unable to sign an EC contract within 30 days of starting work, he repeatedly submitted [complaints] to the Department of Labor, which enforces the law, to take action…

Honor's illegal firings were not resolved by the Departments, nor was the Arbitration Council able to resolve them.

STUM also said that it will continue to monitor whether the leading officers are acting according to the law in this process and will inform the public in a timely manner.
