A Myanmar workshop for garment factory directors and managers
In recent years, we have seen the number of ETI members sourcing from Myanmar increase.
Brands tell us that their Chinese suppliers face new challenges as a result, such as the existence of plural trade unions, which is different from their home country where a unitary union is the norm. Communication difficulties and cultural differences are frequent challenges, along with understanding local legislation.
In this context, ETI is piloting training together with the SMART Myanmar Project, covering Myanmar culture, the latest legal updates and best practice for motivating workers and improving workplace cooperation. The course is delivered in Chinese (Mandarin) language.
- Overview of industrial relations in Myanmar
- Requirements of brand and buyers, as related to the ETI Base Code
- Interpretation of key Myanmar labour laws
- Communication and management on cultural sensitivity
- Developing a better understanding of social dialogue
