Cambodian apparel union accepts award

The Coalition of Cambodian Apparel Workers Democratic Union has been awarded an international prize for promoting garment workers’ rights in Cambodia, according to a press release.

C.CAWDU president Ath Thorn and vice-president Kong Athit flew to Norway yesterday for the prize ceremony on June 14.

The release states that the reward recognises the union’s work since 2000 to help “push workers to get better work rights to be recognised and increases in salary”.

Ath Thorn previously said the prize money of about US$80,000 would go towards the construction of offices that members and non-members could use to hold meetings.
