About Us

 

We are delighted to welcome you to the website of the Action Labor Rights(ALR).

Our History

                   The concept of ALR was started in early 2002s when young people from NLD initiated together with ILO to get

freedom of association and abolish force andchild labour. On May 1st 2007, six ALR member with more than 80 labors from

Hlaing Thar Yar, Shwe Pyi Thar and Dagon Industrials Zone were arrested  after taking part Labors Day celebaration at

American center (library of U.S embassy). On January 13th, 2012, they were released . After  releasing from prison, it was

agreed and decided to continue the activities as an organization and we selected the name of an organization “Action

Labor Rights” and the ALR was founded on 2012, Feb, 5.

                Within two years of implementation up to January 2014, ALR was able to set up 51 unions and different types

and names of trainings with a number of 3201 participants in Yangon, Mandalay and Mague division. At the same time,

ALR is also implementing CSR Assessment on U.S and South Korea companies.

                 In addition to  ALR facilitated 45 labour Organizations to make workshop on 2013 ,Feb , 16 and 17. Within two

years period from 2012 to 2014, APHEDA and British embassy supported financial assistant to impletement the activities of
