Workers at the Chinese-owned Tai Yi Slipper factory in Rangoon's
Hlaing Tharyar Industrial Zone (3) said that they have yet to reach
an agreement with their employers, despite talks on Monday that
included senior government labor officials.
Today's talks, which come a week after workers at the Tai Yi factory
went on strike to demand wages deducted for an unofficial holiday to
mark the Chinese New Year, were the first since the labor unrest began.
