Labourers, employers reach agreements on Employment Contracts

Employers and representatives of employees reached five agreements to break the deadlock for finalising the Employment Contract (EC), according to the Global New Light of Myanmar quoting the Confederation of Trade Unions Myanmar-CTUM.

Following the government asking the two sides to seek ways to start finalizing the EC after the 31st January tripartite meeting in Yangon, employers and representatives of the employees held talks again on 8 February.

During the meeting, the two sides agreed to amend the controversial points in the EC in coordination with each other and to form a committee for drafting an employment contract, according to a statement released by CTUM Tuesday.

The three stakeholders will meet again on 13 February, and employers and employees will discuss the contract’s sticking points.
