Apparel sector may experience more work stoppages
Oct '10
A local workers' union has given a warning to restart the work stoppages if the cases of the suspended workers are not solved. Strikes will be organized in front of the outlets and clothing shops.

The secretary general of the Coalition of Cambodian Apparel Workers Democratic Union (CCAWDU) reported that it had revealed the plan to the government as well as garment industry representatives in an offer to help the union workers who had been suspended before the court's verdict on the validity of the unions' strikes came.

The Ministry of Social Affairs had urged CCAWDU to give them some time in order to solve the problem before organizing strikes. The ministry had also asked the workers to respect the company rules, Labor law of the country and to stop provocating the workers for strikes.

According to the CCAWDU, 94 union representatives had been suspended from their jobs as they were connected with the strikes that took place last month.

The Secretary General of the Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia reported that, fresh legal action is under consideration. He requested the workers to remain away from strikes and work stoppages as these would have a harmful impact on the industry.
