LabourStart photo of the day.On 7 March thousands of textile and garment workers went on strike at Ethiopia's biggest industrial park, Hawassa, demanding better wages, safe working conditions and an end to sexual harassment. Currently there is no recognized union in the industry due to employer resistance and the government's failure to enforce Ethiopia's labour laws. Despite this the Industrial Federation of Textile, Leather and Garment Workers Union continues to organize in the garment industry with support from IndustriALL.
