Philippines: Labour group alleges labour rights violations of Korean-owned Se Jung Apparel; company did not respond
An article posted by a labour-rights watch group Partido Manggagawa alleges that Korean-owned Se Jung Apparel has “maintained its illegal and hardline stance that it will grant the 13th month pay in March instead of December". The article further alleges that Se Jung Apparel’s argument on the “lack of buyers is just an alibi. The truth is that production is being subcontracted by Se Jung to other companies.” Finally, the article asserts that the management of Se Jung Apparel was maneuvering to bust the union when it temporarily closed down in October, a week after the union submitted a proposal for a collective bargaining agreement.
Business and Human Rights Resource Centre invited Se Jung Apparel to respond to the allegations. It did not.
