Electronics workers call for child care

About 700 workers at a Svay Rieng province electronics factory were to demonstrate for the third day today after management refused their demands for access to child care and the reinstatement of five union leaders.

The provincial department of labour yesterday proved unable to sway management or employees at Long Bright Electronic Enterprise in Bavet town’s Manhattan Special Economic Zone, said Meas Sokna, from the Collective Union of Movement of Workers (CUMW).

Strikers walked off the job on Tuesday, calling for an onsite child-care facility or a monthly $10 subsidy, the rehiring of five CUMW representatives whose contracts were not renewed a year ago, and an end to Long Bright’s short-term contract policy, Sokna said.

While management could not be reached, Svay Rieng labour department director Ou Sokhoeun called the strike a “small misunderstanding” between employees and management.
