Unions to support ex-employees of razed garment factory
Jul '11
Rong Chhun, President of the Cambodian Confederation of Unions, has said that if management of the June Textiles garment factory fails to clear the compensation dues of hundreds of its past employees, he would launch a protest against the firm next month.

He added that he would lead the protest in support of ex-June Textiles employees, and would also rally workers from other factories. He further said that if no solution is reached on the matter by close of the current month, a big protest would be held in August.

The Arbitration Council had last month directed June Textiles, which was destroyed in a fire incident during March this year, to pay up to three months salary to its employees as a pre-notice period compensation prior to their termination.

The factory was also directed to pay out to the workers the outstanding amount in respect of remaining annual leave and indemnity payments calculated as 15 days salary multiplied by the number of years worked, with a ceiling at six years.

However, the company has challenged this decision of the Council, asserting that it does not have sufficient funds to pay out such dues.

Taing Kisay, Administration Chief for June Textiles has stated that if they choose to accept the decision of the Council, it would be unjust for the employers.

Over 2,000 employees have already accepted the initial compensation of US$ 20 for each year worked, offered by the company. However, around 1,000 ex-employees are still standing firm on their demand for better lay-off compensation.
