The legal rights and obligations of Myanmar’s workers and employers have changed substantially in the last few years, with significant revisions and additions made to previous labor laws and regulations. At center stage within this context is how labor disputes are addressed.
This informational report presents findings on how the arbitration system works in practice in Myanmar, and what might be done to help strengthen it. The report contains insights from extensive stakeholder interviews across the government, NGO, private, and union sectors, along with suggested recommendations for each stakeholder group that would help bolster the labor dispute resolution system.
