Textile Workers on Strike in Pegu, Burma
5rh December 1997
3,000 workers at a joint venture factory between the SLORC and a Chinese company called Yan Xi Kyan went on a sit down strike in a call for better pay and better working conditions.
On the same day, 5 of the leaders were arrested by police.
On the 6th, 14 more were arrested.
On the 7th, an agreement was achieved where the management agreed to fulfill all the requirements.
But, as there was no actual fulfillment of the agreement by the management, the sit down strike is continuing on till today.
