HAWASSA – Thousands of workers at Ethiopia’s biggest industrial park have been striking demanding that unions be allowed access to the park to help press for better wages and other worker rights. It is claimed that unions are still not being allowed access to the Hawassa industrial park two years after it commenced business, with many international brands, including H&M and PVC Corp, sourcing from there. Hawassa is Ethiopia’s flagship garment producing industrial park and, once fully operational, will have the potential to employ over 60,000 workers.
