New committee to deal with labor issues

Oct '10
After a four-hour meeting organized at the Ministry of Social Affairs, Mr. Ith Sam Heng – the Minister of Social Affairs revealed that the Cambodian government expected to come out with a favorable solution for the differences between the apparel workers and factory owners.

The dispute was triggered by the decision which was taken in the month of July, advocating the setting up of the monthly minimum wage at US $61. Several union leaders had pointed out that the new minimum wage, which will be effective from the month of October, is much lower than the $93 demanded by them.

Government officials, union leaders and representatives from the industry attended the meeting, which was organized in order to address the issues that prompted the strike.

The Minister said that both the parties have agreed to resolve the issue peacefully. A new committee will be constituted which will hold the discussions. The committee will comprise of two government officials – one from the Ministry of Labor and the other from the Ministry of Social Affairs, five representatives from the workers' union and five representatives from the apparel industry.

He also said that once the solution for the dispute is arrived at, it will be forwarded to the Labor Advisory Committee for approval. However, no deadline has been set for the discussions. The worker and industry representatives were asked to submit the names of the committee members by 29th September to the Ministry of Social Affairs.
