ILO urges dialogue on Cambodian minimum wage legislation

Aug '17
The International Labour Organisation (ILO) country office for Thailand, Cambodia and Lao People's Democratic Republic has urged Cambodia to re-examine certain issues in the amendments put forward by the country’s ministry of labour and vocational training regarding the law on minimum wage and has called for a tripartite dialogue on the related legislation.

Observing that the draft law on minimum wage, presently under discussion, reflects many improvements and has raised the minimum wage in the garments and textile sector, the Bangkok-based ILO country office said in a recent statement that the coordination of the draft law with the relevant provisions of the Labour Code (1997) remain unclear.

Some other provisions would restrict the freedom of expression and debate on minimum wage issues, both outside and inside the National Minimum Wage Council, which risks undermining an effective and transparent consultative process and may differ from the standards on freedom of association, the ILO noted.

The ILO has supported this legislative initiative by providing economic and legal advice and is ready continue its advisory services, it said.

Meanwhile, labour minister Ith Sam Heng has said that the universal minimum wage law will be passed this year to prevent a repeat of the 2013 mass protests over garment sector wages.

Independent unions and labour organisations have called for revisions in the draft law, saying none of the changes suggested by them in December 2016 have been incorporated. (DS)
