BANGKOK – A dispute in which 1,388 garment workers claimed they were illegally laid off without compensation following the closure of a lingerie factory, which supplied brands including Victoria’s Secret, Torrid and Lane Bryant, has been resolved after more than a year.

Factory owner Brilliant Alliance Thai Global (BAT) has agreed to pay money owed to the workers following a 13 month campaign by the Triumph International Thailand Labour Union (TITLU), supported by global union IndustriALL.

The workers, mostly women, were laid off without notice in March 2021 when the factory suddenly closed, citing the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic and a lack of orders as reasons.
