However, the owner of the factory refused to accept them back following his appeal at the labour tribunal commission. Approximately 100 workers from the Costec garment factory who went on strike to raise their salaries accepted the decision of the labour tribunal commission to return to work within 30 days of the end of the strike. However, the owner of the factory refused to accept them back following his appeal at the labour tribunal commission.

The labour tribunal commission passed its initial verdict on May 7, ordering the workers to return to the work site and the owner to give their jobs back with their original salaries. Both parties were given the option to appeal the decision within seven days.

The workers informed the factory that they would return to their jobs on May 18, and about 100 workers came back to work that day.

However, the owner said he submitted an appeal at the labour tribunal commission on May 14 to reverse the original decision.

"The owner prevented us from returning to the job site, so we went to the department of labour relations in Insein Township, but the officials could not give us a specific answer. They said the decision would be made by the Labour Tribunal Commission and told us to go to the commission if we wanted to know details. We will report the situation to the commission today," said factory worker Aye Sandar Win on May 18.

Some of the workers are facing difficulties in finding accommodation due to money shortages.

Workers from the factory started a campaign to increase their basic salary in January. Workers at other garment factories in Yangon also joined their course, including tose at Ford Glory. Costec and Ford Glory are owned by South Korean and Chinese national.

On March 4, the protesters marched at the junction of Danyin Kone and No 4 Main Road in Insein Township, where police cracked down on the protesters and detained eight male and six female workers. The detained workers were charged under Sections 18 and 147 of the penal code.

The strike continued this month until the Labour Tribunal Commission announced its decision on May 7. The commission also allowed those wishing to refute its decision to appeal. The decision affected 158 workers who demanded for the formation of labour unions, an end to discrimination against workers and the full protection of labour rights. The commission's decision stipulated that if the workers do not resume work within 30 days as ordered, they would effectively be resigning from their jobs and will not receive compensation.
