"Dispute drags on between Myanmar oil workers and PTTEP", 6 Feb. 2015

Myanmar workers operating on a Thai PTT Exploration and Production oil and gas drilling platform off the coast of Myanmar have so far failed to come to an agreement with the company over a dispute over wages and conditions...The Zawtika Offshore Oil and Natural Gas Workers Association, representing the Myanmar workers, held five hours of negotiations with company representatives...but failed to reach an agreement...The Zawtika Offshore Oil and Natural Gas Workers Association said...: “The company discriminated unfairly against Myanmar workers by denying their rights including the rights related to their wages, holidays and overtime pay. Moreover, the company made one-sided contracts with Myanmar workers, and repeatedly violated its pledges on wage increases. Although the Myanmar workers repeatedly demanded their rights, the company did not make any response.”
