Garment workforce to rally for wage hike
Apr '10
On International Labour Day i.e. on May 1, around 7,000 workers from six labour unions intend to file a petition, by staging a rally, to the National Assembly in Phnom Penh, demanding the top legislative bodies to increase payment of workers in the garment trade and tourism sectors.

While, the Prime Minister, Hun Sen has warned workers to avoid demonstrations, the rally has already been scheduled to commence from Wat Phnom to the National Assembly.

According to Ath Thun, the President of Cambodian Labour Confederation, organizations such as the Coalition of Cambodia Apparel Workers Democratic Union and the Cambodian Tourism and Service Sector Federation will partake in the rally.

These organizations have demanded from the assembly, an increase in the minimum wages, a national social security fund and pensions, extension of work contracts by employers, and permission to allow workers' associations to operate for free, without any interference.

The petition that will be submitted to the National Assembly on May 1, includes the demand of monthly wage improvement of garment workers to US $93, from the current minimum wage of $50 as a priority, that the government has to consider at the earliest possible.

Thun also said that, the workers will be reluctant to work creatively and dedicatedly if their demands are not met with, by the government.
