YANGON - Garment workers' rights campaigners have praised Zara owner Inditex, but criticised Bestseller, after a trade union claimed victory following a two month dispute with a supplier in Myanmar.

The Clean Clothes Campaign (CCC) says Inditex was instrumental in persuading the Huabo Times factory to reinstate 26 union members, including four union leaders, and 81 co-workers sympathetic to the union, who were sacked by the Huabo Times factory within days of the union registering.

The company claimed it had been forced into downsizing by the coronavirus pandemic but the workers said they had previously been assured their jobs were safe and that it was a clear case of union-busting.
