Garment workers warn of another strike
Aug '10
As per Ath Thun, Cambodian Labour Confederation President, over 50,000 apparel workers had thumb printed statements in favour of a strike to protest against the industry's new minimum wage structure. However, a government official averred that, illegal strikes will be faced with stringent actions.

The Labour Advisory Committee, body consisting of government officials and industry delegates, had fixed the minimum wage for apparel workers at US $61 per month. As per this ruling, the minimum wage has hiked by $5, after 2006.

Thun informed that, if the government fails to hold negotiations, labourers will continue with their strike. Thun also informed that, it was not him but the workers who had made the decision to go on a strike and he would definitely follow them.

In the meantime, Anthony Pa, member of the Council of Jurists at the Council of Ministers has warned labour force and Thun that, government would rope in lawsuits and criminal charges against those who get involved in illegal strikes.

As of now the strike is scheduled for August 25, but still, Thun informed that, workers are intending to meet in the coming week and decide for sure if they would continue with the strike or not on the scheduled date. Till then, government has been urged to revise on the minimum wage decision that was taken last month.
