A union claimed yesterday that fashion retailer Bossini had asked sales staff and other employees to work 40 hours extra each month without more pay.


Cheung Lai-ha, from the Confederation of Trade Unions, said about 10 workers from Bossini shops had called the union yesterday to report the company's new demands and to seek help.


The clothing chain had announced plans to increase work hours verbally and had not distributed letters, Ms Cheung said.


The company reported a $45.5 million net loss for the year ended in March against a $64.35 million net profit the previous year.


No one was available for comment at Bossini last night.
