The International Labour Organization's (ILO) Better Factories Cambodia in partnership with Radio Mohanokor FM93.5 is launching a radio competition allowing garment workers to compete using their knowledge of the Cambodia's labour law.

The radio competition will be engaging Cambodian garment workers to express their understanding of the Cambodian labour law. The competition aims to disseminate knowledge about the Cambodian labour law and working conditions in garment industry to workers and the public, while advocating for effective labour law implementation and promoting the industry.

“The basis of a sound industrial relation system, which is a key ingredient of healthy and sustained economic growth, is set in a wide understanding of the labour law and the institutions that implement it,” says Catherine Vaillancourt-Laflamme, Training Specialist for Better Factories Cambodia.

“With this garment workers' competition, Better Factories Cambodia wants to increase the knowledge that Cambodian workers have of the labour law, while promoting the importance, for workers, workers representatives and employers, of respecting the national legal framework, especially in times of economic hardship,” she adds.

The competition is open for free to all current and former garment workers. Submissions will be received until 22 January 2010. Application forms are being distributed to garment factories and can also be obtained from ILO's Better Factories Cambodia office or on our website.

Twelve finalists will be selected to debate with one another in front of a panel of judges during live broadcast on Radio Mohanokor FM93.5. The competition will be aired every Saturday, from 20 February to 1 May 2010. The three winners will be announced on the International Labour Day, 1 May 2010. USD200, USD120, and USD80 will be awarded to the first, second, and third place winners.
