Union leader approves rise in workers minimum wage

Chea Mony, labour leader made an announcement that he had withdrawn his plans for a three-day strike, against the newly approved rise in the apparel sector's minimum wage.

During a meeting of its 125 labourers of the Free Trade Union of Workers of the Kingdom of Cambodia, Mony, the Union's President made the announcement that, the planned strike, which was to commence from Tuesday, will not take place.

Last week, Mony had rejected Labour Advisory Committee's decision to implement the hit of an amount of $11 in the minimum wage, a rise that a few union leaders considered to be insufficient to meet with the worker's requirements. However, on Sunday, Mony informed that, he found the raise sufficient.

More over, Mony also added that, although he agreed upon the government's decision on minimum wage, he would continue to push the employers for additional discounts such as pay adjustments for senior workers who are not able to directly benefit from the increment in the minimum wage, and an assessment of the LAC's decision to freeze the minimum wage negotiations until 2014.

In addition, Mony has also urged major industry employer's group, Garment Manufacturers Association of Cambodia (GMAC), to discuss FTU's concerns, and has threatened to demonstrate a strike if no meeting is granted to him.

As per Ken Loo, Secretary General of GMAC, they would listen out to the union's stance, but the decision of additional adjustments for minimum wage will only be made by the government.
