High-ranking officials from Thailand’s Department of Labour Protection and Welfare under the Ministry of Labour met with officials
from the Thailand-based Myanmar migrants rights organisation Aid Alliance Committee (AAC) and another philanthropic organisation, Raks Thai, at the head office of the Ministry of Labour in Bangkok on Tuesday.
During the meeting, they discussed matters related to Myanmar workers’ difficulties and decided to open a call centre in Thailand that would provide assistance from charitable organisations and the Department of Labour Protection and Welfare.
At the end of the discussion, both parties agreed on
an array of issues – to try and resolve disagreements
between employers and workers, to implement measures ensuring against labour and human rights violations, and to carry out inspections of Thai-owned industries, according to a report on the website of the Aid Alliance Committee (AAC).
