Garment Workers' labor law contest opens for applications

The 5th cycle of the Garment Workers’ Radio Competition allowing garment workers to express their knowledge and experience pertaining to Cambodia labour law, is launched.
 
In collaboration with radio station Vayo FM 105.5 MHz, ILO-BFC will implement the competition intended to address the interest of workers to better understand the Cambodian labour law. This initiative has a strong educational potential and is aimed to send a positive message to workers that the knowledge of the Cambodia labour law is important, within their reach, and useful in their daily lives.
 
The first place winner of last year’s competition, Chhoun Channa, says “providing the chance to workers like me to possess knowledge of the Cambodia labour law will help workers to understand what is legal and illegal to do in the factory and we can approach to management to protect our rights if there is a violation of the law.”
 
BFC’s Chief Technical Advisor, Ms. Jill Tucker, says that building on the success of the past four years of the Garment Workers’ Radio Competition, ILO-Better Factories Cambodia will be evaluating the impact of the programme on listeners as well as contestants.
 
“The aim of the competition is not only to provide a platform for the selected applicants to challenge one another about the Cambodian Labour Law, but also to disseminate the information to listeners, especially garment workers,” said Ms Jill Tucker, Chief Technical Advisor for ILO-Better Factories Cambodia.
 
“A greater understanding of the Labour Law will give workers additional benefits, and eventually will contribute to good workplace cooperation and sound industrial relations,” added Ms Jill Tucker.
 
The competition is open for free to all current and former garment workers. Submissions will be accepted until 25 July 2014. Application forms are being distributed to garment factories and can also be obtained from ILO’s Better Factories Cambodia office.
