COLOMBO – Garment manufacturers in Sri Lanka have again crossed swords with workers' rights campaigners over the protection of factory workers from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The CCC, along with other NGOs and trade unions, claimed that both countries had put workers' lives at risk by exempting garment factories from lockdowns because of their economic importance.
