Cambodian garment workers get wage hike
Jul '12
Pursuant to an agreement reached between the garment manufacturers and union leaders, garment makers across Cambodia have accepted to increase the salaries of their workers by US$ 10 per month.
The increased sum includes payment of US$ 7 towards house rent allowance or transport fees and US$ 3 as attendance bonus for garment workers.
Following the rise, from September 1, 2012, onwards, a garment worker in the Kingdom would be entitled to a minimum salary of US$ 73 plus a US$ 10 attendance bonus.
The agreement was reached under the negotiation of Minister of Labour Vong Sauth, held at the request of Prime Minister Hun Sen, said Nang Sothy, Co-Chair of the Government-Private Working Group on Industrial Relations.
The need for wage negotiation arose after the labour unions warned last month that they would be holding a large-scale protest in August demanding hike in wages.
The garment industry, the biggest foreign exchange earning industry of Cambodia, exported around US$ 4.24 billion worth of products during last year, 25 percent more than its previous year’s exports.
