Labour attaches, agencies to solve labour issues of Myanmar migrant workers abroad

If Myanmar migrant workers abroad face some labour issues, overseas licensed employment agencies have to cooperate with labour diplomats from relevant embassies to relevant countries in helping those workers solve labour problems, according to the Myanmar Overseas Employment Agencies Federation-MOEAF.
In managing the Myanmar labourers legally sent to foreign countries, the aforesaid agencies need to solve the disputes between employees and employers at workplaces, injured and dead incidents in relevant countries as quickly as possible. Moreover, they need to inform officials concerned about occurrences of labour issues, problems and other significant issues in time and cooperate with labour diplomats in solving these problems.
“The licensed employment agencies have to take responsibility for the Myanmar migrant workers they sent from departure to arrival in Myanmar. But, the Ministry of Labour issued a directive that those licensed agencies shall not be involved in the illegal sending of Myanmar labourers abroad. So, our agencies fully follow the directive. Moreover, representatives of agencies will cooperate with labour diplomats from relevant countries in solving the issues of migrant workers,” said U Khin Maung Win of the Myanmar Overseas Employment Agencies Federation (MOEAF).
Additionally, those licensed agencies have to supervise the remittance of money from Myanmar workers to their families as mentioned in the agreements under the remittance systems and ways approved by the State. Moreover, the agencies need to arrange conducting of the employment guideline courses for Myanmar labourers before their departure. At a time when the agreements on appointment were signed by employers and employees, the agencies need to help those workers open savings accounts at local banks, transfer money in approved ways and share knowledge about the legal remittance of salaries to those workers. — ASH/TTA
