The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing 92 million workers in the 5 continents, extends its firm solidarity with the garment workers in Myanmar who have been struggling for better working conditions and benefits over the last period.
The working conditions in Myanmar are a typical example of the very high exploitation rates in the garment sector in Asia. Specifically in Myanmar a minimum monthly wage is around $63, based on a six-day work week.
The World Federation of Trade Unions supports the fair demands of the workers and stands in solidarity with them. The WFTU ensures the working class of Myanmar and worldwide that they can rely on the support and solidarity of the international class oriented trade union movement.
