The Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia (GMAC) has, for a second time, called for the suspension of negotiations with the Trade Union Negotiation Council due to uncertainties around the European Union’s ‘Everything But Arms’ agreement. It repeated a request to suspend discussions over the garment sector’s Collective Bargaining Agreement.

“The GMAC executive committee feels that the uncertainty surrounding EBA means we are not in any position to enter into major negotiations that will impact the industry," said a recent letter released by GMAC secretary general Ken Loo.

Re-engagement on the issue will be initiated once there is some certainty and clarity on the EBA issue, he said.

The council said uncertainties could be managed through dialogue and the decision to suspend all negotiations put the progress made in discussions at risk, according to Cambodian media reports.

Withdrawing from negotiations sends the opposite message, the Trade Union Negotiation Council said. (DS)
