Guangdong workers protest outside Tommy Hilfiger over labour dispute with Hong Kong bosses

Three Guangdong factory workers and labour rights activists staged a demonstration outside the Tommy Hilfiger flagship store in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong on Wednesday (09/30) asking the American clothes brand to pay their overdue severance after one of its contractors in Guangdong closed down. The workers said their Hong Kong bosses disappeared after the sudden closure of Huizhou SKS Manufacturing Company Limited in March this year. The trio, on behalf of about 100 workers, demanded Tommy Hilfiger, which was 80 percent of the factory’s businesses, to pay their severance, according to the labour rights NGO Globalisation Monitor. Globalisation Monitor and two other labour rights NGOs, Scholars Against Corporate Misbehaviour and Asian TNC Monitoring Network, are helping the workers.
