Minimum wage talks for Cambodian garment labour ends Oct 5
The annual negotiations for next year’s minimum wage for Cambodian garment and footwear sector workers kicked off last week in Phnom Penh with members of the tripartite labour advisory committee, consisting of representatives from the government, employers and labour unions, presenting their proposals. The talks will culminate on October 5.

Prime Minister Hun Sen has announced in his speeches that next year’s monthly wage will be more than $160. The government proposed a $162.67 monthly salary, slightly higher than the employers’ proposal of $161. The unions proposed $176.25, a more than 15 percent increase from the current $153 wage.

The figures will be presented for a final vote by a 28-member committee – 14 from the government’s side, and seven each from the other two.

Ministry of Labour Chief of Cabinet Heng Sour, who chaired the meeting, said it was up to the employers and unions to find a middle ground on next year’s wage.

Ath Thorn, president of the Cambodian Labour Confederation, which had last month called for a $223 base wage, said the $176 figure was a unanimous proposal put forth by all unions involved. (DS)
