Striking workers reach agreement with World Jin factory boss

Striking garment workers from the World Jin garment factory will return to work as an agreement was reached on Tuesday with their employer about appointing a new in-charge for the South Korean owned factory, according to the Factories and General Labour Law Inspection Department (FGLLID).
“The factory boss agreed to appoint a new local in-charge for the workers and will allow striking workers to return to their jobs,” said U Kyaw Kyaw Tun, an assistant director of the FGLLID, who participated in negotiations between the employer, workers and government representatives.
Around 300 workers out of more than 500 employed at the factory took part in protests, demanding the factory’s boss to sack a Korean in-charge of the garment factory and to allow the striking workers to return to the job.
The two sides will sign employment contracts when the workers return to the factory.
