Myanmar: Workers at Honor Apparel report multiple labour rights abuses; incl. co. responses
In August 2023, it was reported that workers at Honor Apparel factory faced a series of violations, including workers being forced to work overtime everyday without their consent, despite workers filing a complaint about overtime with the Department of Labour, the Workplace Coordination Committee failing to address workplace violations, the dismissal of day labourers before their three month probation to avoid hiring them as permanent workers, and workers who had quit during the temporary factory closure not being rehired.
In January 2024, the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited OVS SpA, LPP (Sinsay, HOUSE), Mavi, Shimamura (Chip Clip), LC Waikiki (SOUTHBLUE) and HK Works London to respond. OVS SpA, Mavi, Shimamura and LC Waikiki responded. HK Works London did not. The responses can be found below.
