Burmese migrants in Mae Sot, Thailand
Burmese migrant workers in Thailand
The Federation of Trade Unions of Burma (FTUB) provides training and support for Burmese migrant workers in Mae Sot on the Burma-Thailand border. The FTUB was formed by Burmese workers, who with their families, have fled the military regime in Burma by crossing the border into Thailand. Learning about local labour rights and how to organise gives the workers a chance to move beyond poverty and become self-reliant in their dealings with local employers.
