According to a Cambodian official, a committee will be set up to resolve the conflict between apparel workers and stakeholders over the issue of wages and other monetary benefits for the workers.

Minister of Social Affairs and Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation – Mr. Ith Sam Heng had a discussion with 60 stakeholders, after which he pointed out that the proposal for setting up a committee has been agreed upon, which will enable in putting an end to the conflict.

The government organized a meeting with members from apparel factories and workers' unions to come out with a workable solution to the problem addressed by the apparel workers during the strike that took place between 13th and 16th September.

The government also recommended the two contending parties to do away with strikes. The four-day strike, however, came to an end only after the government decided to hold a meeting on 27th September between leaders of workers' unions, representatives of apparel workers and their owners.

The Cambodian garment association asserted that the country has incurred a loss of around US $15 million due to the strike.

Currently, the apparel sector engages around 300,000 workers. Majority of these workers are women, working in over 300 units across the country.
