Workers from Eslite Garment factory which hires more than 3,000 workers and located at Maung Kyan Thee Street, Shwe Lin Ban Industrial Zone, Hlaing Thar Yar Township said that the supervisors are verbally abusing them to get more fabric outputs beyond their productivity.

The Chinese national owned factory is manufacturing Japanese brand GORE-TEX and a cavity with 30 people including the supervisor have to give 80 to 90 fabric per 10 hours.

“They are asking more than we could make. We negotiated before but currently a worker is assigned for 3 to 4 points. We are being verbally abused every day for not meeting the targets,” a worker said.

The factory workers are get paid 50,000 kyats for A+, 40,000 kyats for A and 25,000 kyats for B+, 20,000 kyats for B, 10,000 kyats for C as professional fees. The factory bias the workers who are confident with the supervisors and those who are not are discriminate in the workplace,” the worker said.

There are more than 100 day laborers in the factory but they are not appointed as permanent stuffs after working for more than 3 months. 

The soldiers looked for the trade union leaders in the factory in August, 2023 but the workers was fortunate as the manager informed them a night in advanced. Sine then, the workers were oppressed,” a worker said.

The trade unions were cracked down intentionally and workers are oppressed since then.

The workers said that they want to request to ask only the possible fabric output, not to bias the expert fee, to appoint day laborers with more than 3 months of service as permanent workers, the supervisors not to verbally abuse the workers.
