YANGON – Over 30 workers from the Ford Glory Garment Factory in Industrial Zone No.1 in Shwe Pyitha Township, Yangon Region, staged a protest against labour rights violations yesterday in front of Yangon City Hall.
The factory workers carried placards and banners bearing slogans such as “We demand labour rights” and “Stop discrimination against workers.”
Moreover, they shouted other slogans, including “Stop the unfair dismissal Labour Union members.”
“The cause of the protest is a quarrel between the two factory workers that took place in July. Five labour union leaders were going to resolve the dispute, but the factory owner dismissed the five leaders. We filed a complaint to a local tribunal, which ordered the factory owner to compensate the five union leaders throughout the dispute period and to re-appoint them to their positions.
However, the factory owner did not pay them, and he also refused to rehire them. Without these leaders, we are in danger of losing other opportunities and labour rights,” said Naing Htay Lwin who is a labour union leader.
Moreover, factory authorities banned workers who demanded the reappointment of the five dismissed union leaders.
“Therefore, we had to stage a protest,” said Naing Htay Lwin.
The workers initially planned to stage the protest in front of the factory, but police prohibited the protest because the workers did not have permission. CR. EMG

CHIANG MAI, 27 November 2014 (NNT) – Narcotic suppression police have apprehended two men in the northern province of Chiang Mai after discovering hundreds of thousands of methamphetamine pills hidden in their vehicle. The commander of the Pha Muang Task Force and the deputy commander of the Chiang Mai Provincial Police together held a press conference to announce the arrest of two hill tribe brothers, aged 25 and 28, for possession and trafficking of narcotic substances. The suspects were reportedly pulled over at a checkpoint while driving on Highway 107 towards the central district of Chiang Mai. Authorities found their behavior suspicious and conducted a search on their pickup truck before discovering more than 500,000 tablets of methamphetamine hidden in a secret compartment. The truck had been modified specifically for the purpose. After interrogation, the police revealed that the culprits had been hired to deliver the drug, which had been smuggled in through the border, to dealers in Phitsanulok province in order for the lot to be sent to its final destination in Bangkok. The police will now join forces with military and administrative officials in tracing other members of the network. PHOTOCR.Cr.แอดมิน ตร.สัมพันธ์
