Unions want revision of minimum wage structure
Aug '10
A league of 13 trade union leaders have recently forwarded a letter to the Ministry of Labour and Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia, intimidating the authorities of observing continuous strikes, unless they arrange to converse and renegotiate the new minimum wage structure for the industry by August 15.

The union leaders repeated their objections over the Labour Advisory Committee's decision made last month, whereby it announced to hike the minimum wages for garment workers by US $11 and fixed it at $61 per month. The committee comprises of government officials and sector-wise representatives. Few of the labour groups have also demanded that the same be raised to $93 per month.

Ath Thun, President of the Cambodian Labour Confederation said that, they are not interested in any sort of clashes, but only that they demand justice for the industrious workers who exert themselves, but are not rewarded adequately.

The last revision in the minimum wages for garment workers relates back to 2006, when it was revised from $45 to $50 a month. In a chain of occurrences last month, hundred of thousands of workers, employed in the garment industries while agitating against the new minimum wage structure staged many wildcat strikes.
