Thai Union Group PCL, in collaboration with the Migrant Workers Rights Network (MWRN), recently started a new training program for Thai Union workers on labor rights and employee benefits under the Thai Labor Protection Act. The session provided information about wages, working hours and overtime and holiday pay, as well as social insurance benefits. Thai Union and MWRN jointly developed a bi-lingual Thai/Myanmar labor rights and employee benefits handbook for participants. This handbook will be distributed to all Thai Union workers.
