Garment workers seek Govt intervention

09
Oct '09
Representatives of more than 1,000 Phnom Penh garment workers want government's intervention in a long-running dispute between workers and the owners of the Sky High Garment Factory.

The workers claimed that the factory owners sacked them in late June this year after staging a strike. The owners fired four or five workers daily without mentioning any reason, informed the representatives of factory workers.

As the factory owners didn't provide the severance payments and other compensatory measures under Cambodian labour law, the employees of the factory want the Ministry of Labour to take legal action against the Garment Factory.

As the workers believe that they had been fired unfairly, they want compensation from the company.

Meanwhile, the ministry's head of labour disputes, Mr. Va Yuva Vathana suggested the workers to bring their issues to the court, but the workers say that they don't have sufficient funds to take help from the court.
