Myanmar: Bagan Hotel River View workers determined to win their rights!

Workers at the Bagan Hotel River View in Myanmar (Burma) are determined to defend their union in the face of management hostility and government ineffectiveness in enforcing basic trade union rights.

Despite the dismissal of 5 union leaders earlier this year and management harassment of union members, union members and officers from the Hotel River View and other Bagan hotels enthusiastically participated in the IUF's Global Week of Action for hotel housekeepers and are determined to win their rights.  

Management continues to defy two legal orders to reinstate the unfairly dismissed union leaders and has resorted to a 2014 law which allows up to two years to appeal the court decision. The IUF has filed a complaint against the government of Myanmar with the ILO's Committee on Freedom of Association, highlighting the anti-union uses of a law which precludes the government from enforcing basic rights and its own legal decisions.

The Bagan Hotel River View worker's struggle is critical for the future of trade union rights in Myanmar. If you have not yet been able to send a message to the owners/management, please take a moment to do so and CLICK HERE
