Concerning labour standards:
A worker informed FWF about discrimination and bad behaviour of the line supervisor. According to the complainant, the line supervisor treats workers differently. For example, the line supervisor calls the production manager to show the mistakes of workers he/she dislikes to show that these workers are not working properly. This does not happen to workers that have a good relationship with the line supervisor. According to the complainant, many workers in his/ her department have complaints about discrimination. The complainant stated that the line supervisor shouts and talks in an offensive, insulting way. He/she is insulting workers by shouting to them "you are clumsy, you are not careful etc".
