Dhaka: Garment workers take to the streets for 25 000 BDT minimum wage!

Garment workers of various factories rallied in front of the National Press Club in Dhaka (Bangladesh) on September 29th. This protest was called by the Garment Workers’ Trade Union Center (GWTUC) and kicked off the struggle for 25 000 BDT minimum monthly wage on the streets! Though 25 000 BDT don’t even equal 215 EUR (227 US$), this fight is essential to every single factory worker.

In 2018 the minimum wage was increased the last time. Since then workers have to get along with a meagre 8 000 BDT minimum wage. Since then also many people in Bangladesh suffered under an enormous inflation rate. Especially lower wage workers hardly get along.

Therefore GWTUC, which unites hundreds of thousands of garment workers across the country, fights for an increase in wages for garment workers of more than 200%!

Look out for a call of international solidarity in the future.

Message from a garment factory worker organised with FGWM:

* အောက်ကမြန်မာပြည်မှာ *

Hello, Mingalarbar. I’m reaching out to seek assistance from fellow members of international unions. I work in the garment industry and hold a leadership role within the union. I’m a part of both the Federation of General Workers (FGWM) and a leading position in a garment factory’s union. These unions have been actively combating labor exploitation and advocating for workers’ rights through united efforts. The recent military coup has turned our workplaces into unbearable environments.
Under the leadership of FGWM, our trade unions initiated campaigns (inside factories) against the military dictatorship on February 5, 2021, immediately after the coup. On February 6, our union federation, FGWM became the pioneering group to voice opposition against the military rule in Yangon. Unfortunately, this led to their identification and subsequent capture by the military. Many workers have also become jobless as they fled their workplaces to escape danger. Some have been imprisoned due to the military’s arrests.
At present, amidst extreme challenges and the oppressive actions of employers within the workplace, we are seeking aid for fellow workers. These individuals include those spearheading the movement for labor rights and federal democracy, as well as those imprisoned for advocating human and women’s rights in the workplace. We earnestly request support from our international unions and comrades to help with solidarity.
We have only a limited time left to participate in the fundraising campaign aimed at supporting our comrades inside factories.

Some background info:

The FGWM consists of 40 (factory) labour unions and keeps uniting thousands of members. It is one of the very few labour federations known to us in Asia, which follows a grassroots approach. The FGWM has its roots in the textile factories of the industrial zones in Myanmar. The vast majority of secretaries had to flee to escape pocecution by the military junta and now operates from a house in exile. Some of the comrades who initiated this fundraising met them at their house last year. They emphasized they some of them only managed to escape with the support provided by the previous fundraising done last year.
Despite the military dictatorship they continue with their efforts. The FGWM supports workers to get organised, follows labour fights (like the recent strike at Sun Apparel), which still take place under great danger, and also tries to support members facing state repression, for example seeking refuge or supporting them in prison as far as this is possible. Another focal point is to provide training opportunities for factory workers in regards to organising and labour struggles. All of this can’t be upheld without external support. Due to the extremely precarious living conditions, which evolved especially after the military coup in February 2021, the income of membership fees collapsed. Their supportive partners on the international level are the ICL Working Group Asia as well as the Solidarity Center.

Union busting following strike at JAKO factory in Yangon (Sun Apparel)

Workers at Sun Apparel Myanmar Co. Ltd garment factory have been on strike since June 6, 2023. Almost the whole factory workforce, totalling just more than 400 workers, united in the strike action.
One of their main demands is an increase of the basic daily wage from 4,800 MMK (approx. 2.09€) to 6,000 MMK (approx. 2.61€) per day. According to the minimum wage law, the minimum wage should be reviewed every 2 years and the last time the minimum wage was set in 2018. Since then, no review took place. In the industrial zone, there are a number of factories which have recently increased the minimum daily wage to 5,600 MMK per day, which also motivated the workers to go on strike. The increase in wages is vital due to the significant inscreases in prices for basic commodities. Not increasing wages since 2018 is like cutting your wages each month!

According to sources close to the military council, M.T.W., the leader of the Sun Apparel Myanmar garment factory protest workers, has been arrested by the military council. M.T.W. was arrested a day before the scheduled date to negotiate the demands.

The sources also said that it was known that M.T.W. was arrested at around 11:00 p.m. on June 14, and was taken to the No. 1 Army Military Affairs Security Support Unit for questioning.

Another main demand is the increase of attendance bonus from 20,000 MMK (approx. 8.70€) to 40,000 MMK per month. This bonus was deducted during the Covid pandemic to 10,000 MMK and still remains at 10,000 MMK. In addition to these two main demands, there are several other demands related to serious violations of labour rights.

Those include:

  • Factory management calls for meetings during the workers’ lunch break.
  • Although there is no clause prohibiting to bring your mobile phone to the workplace, they are confiscated during work hours and not even stored properly, so that in some cases they are returned damaged.
  • For those workers who can’t or don’t want to work overtime after an eight-hour work day, the factory does not arrange return ferries to their homes. Furthermore the management refuses to pay the piece rate fees for the completed pieces during these eight hours.
  • The factory owners don’t provide a proper dining place for lunch breaks and therefore workers must eat at the car parking space.
  • The drinking water that the factory owners provide to the local workers is unclean and the drinking water tank is located just 3 feet away from the toilets for the female workers. In contrast, the factory provides commercial clean drinking water bottles to the foreign staff at the workplace.

Two leaders of the factory union were arrested so far, in an attempt to crush the strike.
The factory union at Sun Apparel is part of the Federation of General Workers Myanmar (FGWM). You can support them by contributing to this fundraising ending August 31st, 2023.

Sun Apparel Myanmar garment factory is located in industrial zone 5 in Hlaingthayar township in Yangon and it is operating with a workforce of more than 400. According to the data collected since January 2022, Sun Apparel is a regular supplier to the JAKO sports clothing brand based in Germany.

Any possible calls against JAKO will also be announced here.

News from the Federation of General Workers Myanmar (FGWM)

The Federation of General Workers Myanmar (FGWM) shares the following updates:

  • Myanmar industrial workers, especially garment workers are in the front line against military dictatorship in Myanmar since the start of the coup and until now. They are still participating in every possible way in the struggle against the military junta, such as participating in flash mob strikes, online campaigns and funding the resistance forces.
  • The majority of garment workers are women. At the workplace, they face the violation of labour rights on various levels; e.g forced overtime without compensation, higher production targets demanded by bosses, pressure on permanent workers to resign and be employed again as daily wage workers. Recently a new trend can be observed: owners close their factories, re-open them again with another name, and re-hire workers as daily wage workers. Factory owners want to get rid of permanent workers to avoid having to pay legal entitlements. This is one way of how factory owners worsen working conditions and the life of workers in Myanmar. Due to the social and economic hardships, and lack of employment opportunities, an increase in child labour can be observed in the garment sector.
  • In the past two years the world was able to witness the brutality of the military towards the people in Mynamar. Thousands of civilians were killed and villages attacked. Many of which burnt down during air strikes.
  • The Federation of General Workers Myanmar (FGWM) and Myanmar Labour Alliance (MLA), together with over 200 other civil society organizations, keep calling for the support of comprehensive economic sanctions on Myanmar. This is the only way to stop flow of money to the Myanmar military.
  • Brands are taking advantage of the political instability. In factories producing for major brands such as H&M, Lindex and Mark Apparel, workers are being attacked by supervisors, for example with a hot iron. These violent acts are part of a structural problem. They aim to put workers unter pressure to finish production targets. There are no mechanisms in place to prevent this kind of power abuse.

The FGWM joins Global May Day 2023 and will created t-shirts with these prints:

Κάλεσμα σε δράση!

Οι κοινότητες της εργατικής τάξης σε όλο τον κόσμο αντιμετωπίζουν ένα συνεχιζόμενο αρνητικό σπιράλ φτώχειας και εξοντωτικού χρέους. Σε ορισμένες περιοχές, ο αυξανόμενος θυμός και η οργή τροφοδοτούν απεργίες, διαμαρτυρίες και απεργιακές κινητοποιήσεις στους χώρους εργασίας. Οι εργαζόμενοι αμφισβητούν το ψευδές αφήγημα ότι είμαστε ανίσχυροι να καθορίσουμε το μέλλον μας.
Οι αυξανόμενες τιμές της ενέργειας και των τροφίμων έπληξαν σκληρά πολλά σπίτια, ιδίως τους χαμηλόμισθους εργαζόμενους. Άνθρωποι ζουν ήδη κοντά στο όριο της φτώχειας. Για πολλούς, η μόνη επιλογή είναι μεταξύ θέρμανσης ή φαγητού, καθώς η οικονομική δυσπραγία εντείνεται.

Διαδοχικά οι κυβερνήσεις σε όλο τον κόσμο συνεχίζουν το έργο τους ενάντια στα συμφέροντα της τάξης μας. Οι επιχειρηματίες, οι γαιοκτήμονες, οι εργοστασιάρχες και οι επενδυτές – ως μέρος της άρχουσας τάξης – εξασφαλίζουν την προστασία της εξουσίας και του πλούτου τους σε βάρος των ανθρώπων της εργατικής τάξης και του περιβάλλοντος.

Η ιδεολογία της συνεχούς οικονομικής ανάπτυξης υπαγορεύει τα πάντα. Τα ψίχουλα που μας πετάνε όταν βρίσκονται με την πλάτη στον τοίχο λόγω της οργανωμένης πίεσης μας, δίνονται για να μας φιμώσουν και να μας αποσπάσουν από τον πραγματικό εχθρό: το καπιταλιστικό σύστημα. Που μας αρρωσταίνει και κρατά πολλούς ανθρώπους της τάξης μας στη φτώχεια, ενώ οι φυλακές γεμίζουν ενώ ζητούν να πληρώσουμε και να πολεμήσουμε στους ιμπεριαλιστικούς πολέμους. Η εισαγωγή νόμων για τον περιορισμό της διαμαρτυρίας και τη μείωση των δικαιωμάτων των εργαζομένων για τα οποία σκληρά αγωνίστηκαν μέσα από αμέτρητους αγώνες στο χώρο εργασίας, έχει σχεδιαστεί για να απαξιώσουν κάθε αποτελεσματικό αγώνα της εργατικής τάξης.

Ο θυμός μας δεν πρέπει να εκτρέπεται σε αδιέξοδα που επιδιώκουν να αντικαταστήσουν μια ομάδα μαριονετών με μια άλλη, ούτε σε οποιεσδήποτε μεταρρυθμίσεις του συστήματος που επιδιώκουν να αναμασήσουν τις ίδιες αποτυχημένες μεθόδους όπως πριν. Για εμάς, δεν μπορεί να υπάρξει κατάπαυση του πυρός στον ταξικό πόλεμο. Στόχος μας είναι η κατάργηση του συστήματος της μισθωτής εργασίας και του ίδιου του καπιταλισμού. Αγωνιζόμαστε για τη δημιουργία ενός κόσμου οργανωμένου από και για την τάξη μας, ενός κόσμου που λειτουργεί σε αρμονία με τη γη.

Δεν σκοπεύουμε απλώς να διαταράξουμε· Επιδιώκουμε να ξεπεράσουμε.

Είμαστε πεπεισμένοι ότι αυτό που απαιτείται τώρα είναι η δημιουργία οργανωμένης αντίστασης στους χώρους εργασίας και την κοινότητα, αυξάνοντας την αλληλεγγύη σε τοπικό και παγκόσμιο επίπεδο για την αποτελεσματική επίτευξη των στόχων μας τόσο βραχυπρόθεσμα όσο και μακροπρόθεσμα. Χτίζοντας ενεργά τη λαϊκή αντίσταση στα συνδικάτα μας, στους χώρους εργασίας, στις απεργιακές περιφρουρήσεις και στους δρόμους. στην πρώτη γραμμή όπου κινητοποιούνται οι εργαζόμενοι.

Σε όλο τον κόσμο, εμείς οι επαναστάτες, οι συνδικαλιστές και οι εργάτες πρέπει να οργανώσουμε τον αγώνα μέσα στα αντίστοιχα συνδικάτα με αλληλεγγύη, χρησιμοποιώντας αποδεδειγμένες τακτικές όπως αυτές της αλληλοβοήθειας, της άμεσης δράσης και της αυτοργάνωσης.

Μαζί έχουμε έναν κόσμο να κερδίσουμε! Συνδικαλίστε τον αγώνα!

Bangladesh: Garment Workers call for international support! (minimum wage movement)

An alliance of 11 federations and unions in the garment sector of Bangladesh joined the Garment Workers’ Trade Union Center (GWTUC) in their call to fight for an increase in minimum wages to 25 000 BDT (approx. 215€ / 235US$) per month. That might not sound like much. But considering that the current minimum wage for garment workers in the country is a meager 8 000 BDT, an increase of more than 200% would be a real mile stone for the four million workers in that industry. The vast majority of which are female workers.

In Bangladesh you can find aroud 4000 garment factories, most of which produce for brands like Adidas, H&M, Nike, Marc O’Polo and Zara.

The GWTUC calls on fellow unions and individuals to stand in solidarity with the garment workers. See the call below.
GWTUC has been involved with the Global May Day network in the past few years and also supports the call for Global May Day 2023.

Let’s bring their struggle to our streets and cities!
Their fight is our fight!

PS: Don’t forget to report your actions 🙂

Appel: Global May Day 2023 (Semaine d’action: 26.04. – 03.05.)

Català Deutsch English Español Ελληνικά Gaeilge Polski Português

Syndiquez la lutte !

Les classes populaires du monde entier sont confrontées à une spirale négative continue de pauvreté et d’endettement écrasant. Dans certaines régions, la colère et la rage croissantes alimentent les grèves, les protestations et les actions industrielles sur le lieu de travail. Les travailleur.euses remettent en question le discours erroné selon lequel nous sommes impuissants à déterminer notre avenir.

L’augmentation des prix de l’énergie et des denrées alimentaires frappe durement de nombreux foyers, en particulier les travailleur.euses à bas salaires. Les personnes qui vivent déjà au niveau du seuil de pauvreté ou en dessous. Pour beaucoup, le seul choix possible est de se chauffer ou de manger, alors que les difficultés économiques s’intensifient.

Les gouvernements qui se succèdent dans le monde entier continuent de travailler contre les intérêts de notre classe. Les hommes d’affaires, les propriétaires terriens, les propriétaires d’usines et les investisseurs -en tant que membres de la classe dirigeante, veillent à protéger leur pouvoir et leurs richesses aux dépens des travailleur.euses et de l’environnement. L’idéologie de la croissance économique continue dicte tout.

Les miettes qu’ils nous jettent lorsqu’ils sont au pied du mur en raison d’une contre-pression organisée, sont données pour nous faire taire et nous détourner du véritable ennemi : le système capitaliste. Il nous rend malades et maintient de nombreuses personnes dans la pauvreté, tandis que les prisons se multiplient et que l’on attend de nous que nous payions et combattions pour les guerres impérialistes.

L’introduction de lois visant à restreindre les protestations et à réduire les droits des travailleur.euses, obtenus de haute lutte sur les lieux de travail, est destinée à faire dérailler toute lutte efficace de la classe ouvrière.

Notre colère ne doit pas être détournée vers des impasses qui cherchent à remplacer une série de marionnettes par une autre, ni vers des réformes du système qui cherchent à répéter les mêmes méthodes qui ont échoué par le passé. Pour nous, il ne peut y avoir de cessez-le-feu dans la guerre des classes.
Notre objectif est l’abolition du système salarial et du capitalisme lui-même. Nous luttons pour la création d’un monde organisé par et pour notre classe, un monde qui fonctionne en harmonie avec la terre.

Nous n’avons pas l’intention de nous contenter de perturber, nous cherchons à vaincre.

Nous sommes convaincus que ce qu’il faut maintenant, c’est créer une résistance organisée sur le lieu de travail et dans les communautés, en renforçant la solidarité au niveau local et mondial afin d’atteindre efficacement nos objectifs à court et à long terme.

Nous construisons activement une résistance de base dans nos syndicats, sur le lieu de travail, sur les piquets de grève et dans les rues -en première ligne, là où les travailleur.euses se mobilisent.
Partout dans le monde, nous, révolutionnaires, syndicalistes et travailleur.euses, devrions organiser la lutte au sein de nos syndicats respectifs en toute solidarité, en utilisant des tactiques éprouvées telles que l’entraide, l’action directe et l’auto-organisation.

Ensemble, nous avons un monde à gagner ! Syndiquez la lutte !

Treoir chun Global May Day 2023

Català Deutsch English Español Ελληνικά Française Polski Português

★ Seachtain Ghníomhaíochta: 26ú hAibreán – 3ú Bealtaine ★

Eagraígí an troid!

Tá fáinne fí na bochtaineachta agus fiacha móra i ndán don phobal lucht oibre ar fud an domhain. I roinnt réigiún, cuireann borradh feirge agus mire le stailceanna stailceanna, agóidí agus gníomhaíochtaí tionsclaíocha sna láithreacha oibre. Tá oibrithe ag ceistiú an scéil bréagaigh a insítear dúinn nach bhfuil aon chumhacht againn chun ár dtodhchaí a a bhaint amach.
Tá go leor teaghlaigh ag fulaingt mar gheall ar ardú praghsanna fuinnimh agus bia, go háirithe oibrithe ar phá níos ísle. Daoine a mhaireann ar thairseach na bochtaineachta, nó faoina bhun. I gcás go leor oibrithe, níl aon rogha acu ach idir teas agus ithe, agus an cruatan eacnamaíoch ag dul in olcas.

Oibríonn rialtas i ndiaidh rialtais eile ar fud an domhain i gcoinne leasanna ár n-aicme. Tá sé i gceist ag an lucht gnó, tiarnaí talún, úinéirí monarchan agus infheisteoirí, mar chuid den aicme rialaithe, a gcuid cumhachta agus a saibhreas féin a chosaint, agus is iad daoine den lucht oibre agus an timpeallacht a bheas thíos leis. Is é idé-eolaíocht an fháis eacnamaíoch gan chosc atá i gceannas ar achan rud.

Na grabhróga a chaitear linn nuair a bhíonn a lámh i mbéal an mhadaidh mar gheall ar fhrithbheartaíocht eagraithe, is chun muid a chur inár dtost a chaitear, agus ár n-aird a bhaint den fhíor-namhaid: An córas caipitlíoch. Cuireann sé tinneas orainn agus coinníonn sé i ngreim na bochtaineachta muid, agus na príosúin plódaithe. Tá siad ag súil go dtroidfidh muid ina gcogaí impiriúlacha, agus gur muide a íocfaidh/íocfas astu.

Cuirtear dlíthe i bhfeidhm chun srian a chur le hagóidí agus cearta oibrithe a laghdú, cearta ar íocadh go daor as trí streachailtí gan áireamh na láithreacha oibre, chun aon troid éifeachtach ar son an lucht oibre a chur dá boinn.
Ní féidir ár bhfearg a chur amú síos bóithre caocha, agus feadhain ar slabhra fós ag an aicme rialaithe a chur in aít an chinn a bhí againn, ná le haon leasú a chur i bhfeidhm a dhéanann aithris lom ar na modhanna céanna ar teipeadh orthu cheana féin. Ní féidir linn sos cogaidh a fhógairt i dtaca leis an choimhlint aicmeach.

Is é an cuspóir atá againn ná deireadh a chur leis an gcóras pá chomh maith leis an gcaipitleachas féin. Tá muid ag streachailt chun saol a chruthú atá eagraithe ag ár n-aicme-ne agus ar son ár n-aicme-ne, saol atá ag teacht go foirfe leis an timpeallacht.

Ní hamháin go bhfuil sé i gceist againn a bheith ag cur isteach ar an gcóras; tá muid ag iarraidh é a scriosadh.

An rud atá ag teastáil anois, ná láithreacha oibre eagraithe agus frithsheasmhacht an phobail a chruthú, an dlúthpháirtíocht a mhéadú go háitiúil agus go domhanda chun ár gcuid spriocanna a bhaint amach anois agus i ndeireadh na dála.

Seasmhacht bheomhar a chothú go gníomhach inár gceardchumainn, sna láithreacha oibre, ar línte picéad agus ar na sráideanna; ar na línte tosaigh ina bhfuil oibrithe ag tionól.
Ba cheart dúinn mar réabhlóidithe, sindeachálaithe agus oibrithe an streachailt a chur chun cinn ar fud an domhain, laistigh de na ceardchumainn i ndlúthpháirtíocht, ag baint úsáide as teaicticí ar nós cuidiú na gcomharsan, gníomh díreach agus féineagrú.

Tá domhan le buachan againn le chéile! Eagraígí an troid!
