Union leader says 'no' to GMAC's offer

The Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) said that if workers and unions ask for apologies, it would take back all its complaints related to last month's strikes. But, a prominent union leader has rejected the offer that has been put forward after several meetings, with union leaders and government officials. The meetings have been held to resolve the disputes within the industry, said Mr. Ken Loo, Secretary General GMAC.

Mr. Loo has put two main conditions, quoting those as necessary. The first would be at the confederation level, wherein the workers are expected to offer a letter of apology to all stakeholders, and the second would be at the enterprise level, wherein the workers are expected to ask for apology from the factories.

He further stated that the issue will get resolved when the workers' unions accept and acknowledge the fact that they had committed a mistake. However, according to the Secretary General of the Cambodian Labour Confederation, Mr. Kong Athit, the offer presented by the GMAC cannot be accepted.

Mr. Athit said that they cannot apologize, since, the unions had not done wrong and the government has also not accused them of being wrong. To apologize would mean to accept the fact that the unions had done wrong and this would offer a scope to the association to create more troubles for the unions, he added.
