Garment workers seek pay for unscheduled work break

Oct '09
Demanding salaries for an unscheduled work break of two months, around 300 workers of the New Point World Trade garment factory, in Russey Keo district, staged strikes.

The factory management closed the factory and asked the workers to stop work temporarily, without informing them when to re-join the work and even without paying salaries, said one of the garment workers.

In addition to this, the management is preparing to pack around 400 sewing machines to ship them off, the worker added by saying.

The workers who need sufficient compensation to fulfill their basic requirements said that the factory representatives had offered them US $13, an insufficient amount, for each month they were unoccupied, which they refused to take.

Whereas, Deputy General Director of New Point World Trade Mr. Chao Pheng said that the economic downturn had taken its toll on the factory operations and forced it to down its shutter as the factory is not receiving any new orders from its buyers at present due to recession, but the factory will be re-opened by November end, informed Mr. Pheng.

Meanwhile, the workers of Fortune Garment and Woolen Knitting Company in Kandal province have stopped the strike and re-started work after receiving a letter, to end the protests, from the Arbitration Council Foundation.

But the workers threatened the factory management that they will strike again in case of unfulfillment of their demands.
