GMAC refutes allegations of union leader

The Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia GMAC), reacting to a statement from a trade union leader said that, Cambodia is the only country which has implemented a labour-linked trade policy, particularly in the garment industry.

GMAC, which represents all garment export-oriented factories, has taken serious note of the statement and considers it as publicly misleading in facts and says the allegation is baseless and in contrast to the ILO-BFC's monitoring reports.

Recently, Mr Moeun Tola, the labour programme head of the Community Legal Action Centre, was quoted as saying that Cambodian labour conditions have deteriorated sharply in the last few years and that minimum wages are not paid.

GMAC states that, labour conditions in the industry have been under strict monitoring by the International Labour Organisation-Better Factories Cambodia Project (ILO-BFC).

BFC is a programme of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), which is a specialised agency of the United Nations and is led by a Project Advisory Committee comprising representatives from the government, GMAC and Cambodian trade unions.

GMAC adds by saying that, labour conditions in the garment industry have been constantly improving as clearly indicated by the reports, as well as statements made by the Project Advisory Committee.

According to unofficial figures, there are more than 1,000 unions in the garment industry, which has around 300 plus companies, which means there are four unions per factory and some would have even up to 10 unions.
