Factory and union stitch up agreement

More than 300 striking workers at Jie Wei garment factory in the capital’s Dangkor district will return to work today after successful negotiations yesterday settled a labour dispute that led to a three-day strike last week.

Factory management agreed to nine of the 11 demands made by workers, representatives of the company and workers said yesterday, after meeting with officials from the Ministry of Labour.   
The two demands the company did not agree to were half-pay for workers on maternity leave and the re-employment of seven workers who had been allegedly ousted without just cause. Those workers were also union representatives.

Union Federation for Labor Rights president Sam Soeurn said the strike was successful and that the factory had “recognized its mistakes” and “will stop exploiting workers”.

Var Yuwathana, director of the Labour Dispute Office of the Ministry of Labour, said that the two worker’s demands that were not met would be forwarded to the Arbitration Council for review.
