Workers from CCI Cho Cho continue their protest

Workers from CCI Cho Cho factory have been protesting for more than one month for their demands to be met.
        The factory, located in Twin Thin Atwinwon U Tun Nyo Road in Hlaing Tharyar Industrial Zone (2), have been allegedly neglecting benefits for workers after agreeing to pay daily minimum wage of Ks 4800 per day.
        More than 100 workers from that factory have been protesting since June 8.
        “In the past, we were entitled to minimum wages plus welfare of Ks.40000. After changing minimum wage to Ks. 4800 per day, we get no benefits or allowance. That’s why we are protesting. Besides, working hours changed from 3 shifts to 2 shifts. We’ll continue our protest as long as our demands are not answered,” said Thwe Thwe Win, one of protestors.
        The National Committee for the Minimum Wage increased the minimum wage from K3600 (US$2.70) to K4800 per day. Once the Union government formally agrees to it, the increase will be approved and implemented immediately.
        Before the minimum wage was set at Ks.3600 to K.4800 per day,employers would shoulder costs for ferry fees, full attendance allowance, services allowance and good performance rewards.
        But after the minimum wage was raised, many businesses stopped allocating these allowances.
        According to Kyaw Kyaw, General Manager of the Factory, this issue have already been “settled” by workers dispute center and the labour department and decision of the workers to continue their protest depends entirely on them.
