Dismissed Tack Fat workers strike

Over 1,000 workers will today hold a strike at the Tack Fat garment factory in Meanchey district’s Chak Angre Leu commune in Phnom Penh to demand the government intervene to provide them with full compensation after the factory declared bankruptcy and closed on March 16. Yang Sophorn, vice-president of the Free Trade Union, said yesterday that 1,008 workers had made five demands under the labour law. “The government and the labour ministry did not reply to the workers’ letter,” she said. Tack Fat representatives have previously said that the company can afford to meet three of the demands.
