Garment workers resume work
Feb '11
Thousands of garment workers from across the country joined a massive strike during the month of September last year while agitating for higher wages. Around 3,300 workers from the Kandal province faced either suspension or dismissal owing to their participation in the strike, which included 161 workers from the Sa'ang district's Goldfame Enterprise factory.

But now, owing to an amicable settlement to the employer-employee row, around 200 garment workers would get back to their duties from February 21, 2011 onwards. However, 142 workers still remain without work and have yet not been reinstated.

In September, 2010, the Prime Minister Hun Sen had requested for an amicable settlement of the employer-employee row going on in the garment industry. He urged the court to quash all the complaints that the employers had lodged against the agitating workers, and demanded that all the workers should be allowed to resume their jobs.

The President of the Coalition of Cambodian Apparel Worker's Democratic Union, Ath Thorn revealed that, reinstatement of the workers followed a negotiation carried out during a recent meeting of the company and its buyers.

Thorn said that, they had informed the companies and the buyers about the problems that the workers were facing after losing their jobs and even the Prime Minister's intervention in the matter.

Also that, the union is to convene a meeting with the representatives of the factory management in Phnom Penh on February 21, 2011, to discuss the issues related with workers' rights.
