YANGON - A pioneering agreement to protect freedom of association for garment workers in Myanmar - which was halted because of the coup - could become the blueprint for other garment manufacturing countries, according to a new report.

The Danish Ethical Trading Initiative (DIEH) published the report evaluating the Myanmar Guideline on Freedom of Association (FOA) which was agreed in November 2019 between Industrial Workers Federation of Myanmar (IWFM) and employers supplying a number of garment brands.

It was subsequently derailed by the military coup which overthrew the democratically elected government in February 2021 and made it impossible for trade unions to operate freely in Myanmar.
