PM calls for amicable settlement to labour dispute

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has requested for an amicable settlement of the employer-employee row going on in the garment industry. He wanted that, all protesting workers should resume work, while the court should quash all the complaints that the employers lodged against these workers.

Sen who was speaking at the graduation ceremony at the National Institute of Education in Phnom Penh said that, he has urged the court to drop all charges against workers, while the factory owners should permit workers to rejoin their duties. He also urged the unions to abide by the labour law.

During July, the government fixed the new minimum wage for the industry at US $61 per month, which was much lower than the minimum wage of $93 demanded by the unionists, due to which hundreds of workers went on strike on September 13.

Though, the strikes ended on September 16, but the next day itself new industrial action stirred up, following the news of suspension of around 200 worker's leaders on allegations of provoking the strikes.

The Premier said that, he signed some papers on September 26, which directs the court to drop all the allegations against workers and union representatives. The same documents also carry an appeal to all factory owners to reinstate workers to their duties.

This is what he calls a “win-win solution”, he said and added that, it's his request to all the unionists and the employee's to not to forget that these factories are their source of sustenance.
