YANGON – A collective of workers’ rights organisations has submitted a complaint against fashion titan C&A to the Complaints and Disputes Committee of the Dutch Agreement on Sustainable Garments and Textiles, accusing the retailer of turning a blind eye to rights violations at one of its supplier factories in Myanmar.  

Since 2018, when Myanmar’s minimum worker wage was increased to US$3.30, staff at the site of Roo Hsing have been at loggerheads with the factory’s bosses after an underhand attempt to implement a bonus system was caught out as a ruse to keep wages low.

After years of grappling between the two parties, the Clean Clothes Campaign Netherlands (SKC), Action Labor Rights (ALR) from Myanmar and SOMO have intervened and are calling on key customer C&A to address the supply chain violations.
