Myanmar bakers win dispute

This week, workers employed at the Mayson Bakery factory in Yangoon's Hlaing Tharyar Township, won an important victory after a month long strike. In early March, the company summarily dismissed 184 workers, including its union activists. Through strong solidarity from local workers and support from the International Union of Food workers (IUF), 180 workers were offered their jobs back. Negotiations are still continuing over the remaining four, all of whom are union activists.
