Yaung Chi Oo Workers Association
Access to Employment Justice
Yaung Chi Oo Workers Association (YCO) supports dispute resolution and legal redress for workers in the Shwe Pyi Thar Industrial Zone of Yangon Region. YCO reaches not only factory workers, but also those engaged in construction and more precarious forms of informal, casual labour, such as unloading boat shipments. YCO engages in awareness- raising on labour-related abuses, labour law, workplace organizing, and industrial dispute resolution. YCO will also collaborate with academics to produce evidence-based research in support of worker empowerment, labour rights advocacy, and policy reform. YCO also provides case support for worker grievances brought to the Shwe Pyi Thar Township Conciliation Body and/or the Yangon Region Dispute Settlement Arbitration Body.
