THAILAND: Workers union appeals to Triumph plant - report
Reports in Thailand say that workers who are losing their jobs at Body Fashion Thailand - as part of a restructuring by lingerie maker Triumph International - are asking for higher compensation through their unions.
Many of the workers, who are being made redundant from 28 August, are women with dependents, reported the Bangkok Post.
The newspaper said that union leaders want the departing workers to get one month's pay for every year at the firm.
On Monday (29 July) German-based Triumph announced it was slashing a total of 3,616 manufacturing jobs - 1,930 in Thailand. The rest will be shed in the Philippines.
Triumph was not available to immediately comment on the Bangkok Post report.
However, the company said on Monday: "The company deeply regrets that any job losses are necessary, but is making every possible effort to ensure that all affected employees are being treated fairly and with respect for their contributions to the company."
