Myanmar workers fired for not signing employment contract


Ninety-seven clothing workers in Myanmar’s Mandalay Region have been sacked by their employers for refusing to sign a government contract, which they deemed as disadvantageous to the employees, a union leader reported.

Daw Zar Zar Latt, an executive member of the Panda Textile and Garments factory, said the management warned 300 workers who had yet to sign the employment contract that they would also be fired if they continued to defy the order.
