COLOMBO – A new report has accused Sri Lanka’s largest garment manufacturer, Brandix Lanka, of breaching COVID-19 guidelines in the run up to what was a deemed a ‘superspreader’ event in October 2020, and subsequently cracking down on unions that spoke out on the issue.  

Published by the Asia Floor Wage Alliance (AFWA) and Global Labor Justice-International Labor Rights Forum (GLJ-ILRF), the report alleges that Brandix and the Sri Lankan government, police and military escalated a campaign of reprisals and repression against workers which went on the record regarding the matter.  

A Brandix spokesperson has vehemently denied the allegations, picked holes in the report and described accusations of intimidation and reprisals as “inflammatory rhetoric”.
